The Germans occupied Denmark from 1940-1945. During this period of suppression, military terror and civil rights abuses, the Danish population rallied itself with many inspiring acts against their oppressors. The story of that occupation and that resistance is told in this museum. Various artefacts, documents, weapons, photo show the perspective of this period of Danish history from both angles: the Germans and the Danish, and how the oppressors coped with the sabotage carried out by the local resistance. Also on display are various instances of Danish, Allied and German propaganda. The location of the museum itself is historic: an old police station, which used to be the German Gestapo Headquarters.

  • The museum is good for someone who is into the subject but it has very little English translations.

  • Definitely worth the visit! Cheap entrance, and lots of information. Make sure to ask for the "prison cell experience" before you leave!

  • A museum dedicated to displaying the dire times of Nazi occupation of Denmark during the Second World War. A good visit in combination with the Female History museum right next door, as both offer great insight into the past.

  • Glimrene museeum, der er bl.a. en fin samlig af våben. Husk kontanter.
