The museum for the servants at Skovsgaard

The basement and first floor of Skovsgaard is a museum for the servants. You can call it a reverse manor house museum, because the audience for once get to see how life was for the servants who lived in small rooms downstairs in the basement, while the masters had two floors with over 20 rooms available.
Walking around you go on the first floor through the landowner's study and his wife's perfumed bedroom. From there you go down the stairs to the basement, where you will meet maids in the process of doing their daily lives in the kitchens, and you see a lot of room for firewood and food, and may eventually look into the dark and somewhat filthy outdoor privy.

The Carriage Museum at Skovsgaard
The Carriage museum is housed in the old stables. There are about 25 work- and professional and private carriages in a natural setting: The bridal coach is drawn by an old Oldenborger horse in a street in Rudkobing in 1900, with building facades, paving, signs and street lamps; the bakery carriage stands on a courtyard in front of a small half-timbered and the sleighs in a winter landscape.
There are several other types of carriages and sleighs, and also a collection of the last private owner, Miss Ellen Fuglede's toys.

The Forestry Museum at Skovsgaard
The Forestry Museum describes the development of forestry seen with Langeland eyes, from about 1900 until the 1980s. Langeland has historically had good forestry and much forest has been owned by the estates, especially the county of Langeland. Today, State Forestry Administration island's major forest owner, and new forests are planted.

The Forestry Museum shows the development from the time when people went into the woods year round and where the trap ax, forest tilt jack and forest sledding and horse were the main tools to the present day, where forest contractors replaces forestry workers.

The exhibition has a section for children, where they can meet the forest troll and tell the story about the time when the magician bewitched maiden Ellen on Skovsgaard.

The Association Langeland Tractor and Machine Collection exhibits tractors and agricultural machines fromt a bygone era in the development of agriculture. The exhibits are at least 35 years of age and have all driven in Denmark from new or used imported before 1980.
