Old Estrup's history can be traced back to the 1300s, and for 600 years the place has been in the family of Scheels. In the 17th and 17th century, it was one of the richest and most influential families in Denmark. It is said about Christen Skeel that he possessed so large land possessions that he could ride from Grenå to Viborg solely on his own lands. Only in 1926, Old Estrup was sold as a result of a new inheritance law, which made it impossible to keep the farm in the family's property.

In 1930, Old Estrup was established as a museum, and today it appears as a unique example of the Danish manor houses and the life that was lived among rulers and servants. The museum is an interior museum. That is, rooms, hallways, and boutiques are decorated as authentically as possible so that visitors can get the best impression of daily life in the manor house.
