The early 12th-century church in Skibby is its primary draw, and it has some well preserved murals. The earliest of them are from the late 12th century and were discovered in the Romanesque apses in 1855. The Skibby Chronicle, a Latin manuscript, was discovered buried under the altar around 1650. The text, which covers Denmark’s history from 1046 to 1534, has sparked significant discussion over the author’s identity and whereabouts. A doll museum with 6,000 pieces is located in the harbor town of Skuldelev, northeast of Skibby (open from March to October).
