One of the Limfjord Museum's most vibrant and exciting departments is the museum's historical boatbuilder's yard. Here our team of skilled workmen restores and maintain the museum's collection of boats that has all sailed on Limfjorden.
The boatbuilding's staff consists of the Chief Executive Klaus Nielsen, trained shipwright and Kaj Bush Petersen, technical service personnel. In addition, the boatyard is the daily meeting point for the majority of the museum's staff of volunteers, who counts everything from former fishermen and pilots to forge and primary school teachers.
Besides maintaining the museum's floating objects, the boatbuilder's yard has an important mediating role. Here, museum visitors have a chat with the staff, who happily talk about the work of the historical boats and about Limfjorden's history in general.
The boatbuilder's yard was built in 1994 and also houses the museum's storage facilities.
The boatbuilder's main task has recently been the restoration of Løgstør old boat "Lodsen", which after four years is now ready to sail the inlet again. Read more about the boat "Lodsen" here.
