The cozy local museum
in the main street
The museum houses in a beautiful, preserved building in the main street of the town. The building was build in 1846 as a merchant’s house and was later preserved in 1954. The association “Friends of the Museum” of that time bought the building in 1992, and thus the museum became a private foundation. The museum did then receive a big and versatile collection of weights and measures, dated from 1588-1947 by the former Stubbekøbing Municipality. This collection did at that time form the basis of the beginning of the museum and is now exhibited in the beautiful rooms of the museum.
The many exhibitions show the life, as it was in a small provincial town about the 20th century.

The museum was founded in 1977 in a co-operation between Stubbekøbing Municipality and the motorbike collector master painter Erik Nielsen from Karleby. For more than 20 years Erik Nielsen had collected, bought and restored motorbikes.
In the recent 37 years the collection of the museum has become bigger and bigger. Nowadays Stubbekøbing Motorbike Museum exhibits more than 160 motorbikes, 15 mopeds and 80 loose motorbike engines from 1897 to 1994, and it places the museum as one of the biggest in Europe. The motorbike collection contains a string of pearls with rarities and milestones from England, Germany, the USA, France, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Sweden and Japan. The big width of rare brands and classic models from so many nations is quite unique, but most of the motorbikes have a Danish history and have driven in Denmark.
Stubbekøbing Motorbike Museum shows the technical development which the motorbike has gone through from 1897 and until today.
The radio collection
