Denmark's longest drying barn

After a visit to the Fossil and Moclay Museum, you can take a walk along the beautiful nature trail to the restored drying barn at the old Skarrehage Moclay Works. In 2013, Museum Mors was granted a considerable amount by A.P. Møller Foundation. The money was earmarked for renovating the 190-metre-long and 9-metre-wide drying barn, which from the late 1940s until 1977 was used to wind-dry masonry bricks from Skarrehage Moclay Works. The barn, which is the longest of its kind in Denmark, is located immediately south of the  factory complex. It was just one of many in the area, but is the last one still standing.

If you visit the drying barn, you will get the history of its use and the history of the moclay industry from the early 1900s right up to the present day.

It is not possible to drive to the drying barn, so instead take a brisk stroll through beautiful nature from the museum and experience a unique story in a unique setting. The drying barn is free to visit and is open all year round.
