The Ladby Tapestry will be extended

05. December 2017 | The Johannes Larsen Museum

Meaning - the exhibition! So many have urged us to extend the exhibition period of this popular exhibition, The Ladby Tapestry, that we have decided to keep if for two more months. So if you haven’t yet been by to see it, you now have the chance, until January 28, 2018.

At the Johannes Larsen Museum, we have noticed the huge interest in this beautiful tapestry, which tells the story of the last journey of the Ladby king.

“The Ladby Tapestry is very popular, and we have found a way to extend the exhibition period by a couple of months. The tapestry, and the museum in general, are a big draw, and we have experienced an increase in visitors by 40% in September and 45% in October, compared to September and October of last year. This increase is, to a great degree, because of our exhibition with the Ladby Tapestry,” said Mette Ladegaard Thøgersen, head curator of the Johannes Larsen Museum.
