About the museum of the Moravian community
In the museum of the Moravian community, there are various exhibitions about the history and musical traditions of the Moravians, and you have the possibility of stepping into the memorial living room set up in memory of the noblewoman Christina Friederica von Holstein. The museum also holds a variety of exhibits and ethnographic items from the missionary work of the Moravians all over the world.
In addition to all this, the museum also comprises an art exhibition with paintings by the artist Jeppe Madsen-Ohlsen and photos by photographer Ole Akhøj.
The museum is located on the 1st and on the 2nd floor in the Sisters’ House (Søstrehuset).
The Choir Hall
The beautiful choir hall is found on the 1st floor in the Sisters’ House (Søstrehuset).
Back in the middle of the 19th century when the Sisters’ House had its days of glory as home for the unmarried women and girls in town, there were around 250 inmates in full activity on all floors. Their social and spiritual community was built and strengthened by activities such as cooking and crafts and not least by the many daily devotions with hymns and prayers which took place the large choir hall.
When you enter the choir hall you hardly feel that time has passed since the time back then. Everything is still intact – from the long, white wooden benches and the beautiful organ at the end of the room to the chandeliers with rise-and-fall fitment hanging from the ceiling.
During the restoration process 2012-2014 there was great focus on keeping this room and the interior for posterity in the best possible way.
When you have paid the entrance fee for the museum, you can visit the choir hall free of charge.
Tickets can be bought in Museum Kolding | Christiansfeld.
