SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS 2022

"Bolden ruller - fodbold på Mors"

"The Ball Rolling - Football on Mors" is a nostalgic, fun, light, and informative exhibit on the world's most popular sport as it's been played and experienced on Mors throughout the years.

The exhibit is filled to the brim with items, photos, stories, and anecdotes from the island's distant football past and all the way through to present day.

Even though the exhibit has a very local feel, the history of football on Mors will of course be familiar to many other local communities; in other words, you don't need to have cheered for legends like Henning Enoksen, played in one of the island's clubs, or been a regular at the local matches in order to appreciate the exhibit.

The exhibit is chronological, and each area contains one or more decades of football history. There's also the "club house" as well as the "room of legends", which tells the stories of the three star players of the island: Henning Enoksen, Kaj Poulsen, and Tommy Troelsen.

The exhibit is only in Danish.

"The Millionaire from Mors"

M.C. Holm’s School, M.C. Holm’s Foundation and M.C. Holm’s Street. Shipowner and shipyard owner Mads Christian Holm has certainly left his mark on Nykøbing. But who was he? And what is really up and down in the story of "the lucky Holm", as he was called on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. In this special exhibition we shed some light on "The Millionaire from Mors".

The exhibition tells the fascinating story of the poor boy from Nykøbing, who was trained as a shipbuilder, traveled to California and returned home as a wealthy man who embarked on several successful business adventures in Copenhagen and Elsinore. It is the tale of visions, big plans, lost love, children out of wedlock and a never-failing affection for his hometown.

Mads Christian Holm, who lived from 1827 to 1892, has always been a bit of a mystery. It is a man who was surrounded by myths and about whom very little was known. Based on the - very few - existing descriptions of him and on completely new source material, the exhibition tries to give the most extensive picture of the mystery and myth of M.C. Holm so far. Along the way the exhibition also presents an unseen dark side of Holm.
