Museum of Danish Resistance

© Connie Maria Westergaard

ATTENTION! The museum is temporarily closed to visitors due to fire damage.

The Museum of Danish Resistance tells the story of Danish resistance during the Nazi occupation of Denmark from 1940 to 1945 and provides detailed information on the illegal press, sabotage, and the flight of many Danish Jews to Sweden.

Among the objects on exhibit are British propaganda leaflets, wireless sets and other examples of how Britain and Denmark managed to maintain contact during the war.

Domestic articles such as blackout curtains, an original PH blackout lamp from Tivoli Gardens, ration cards, coffee substitutes etc. will give you an idea of daily life back then.

Eyewitness accounts given by members of the Danish resistance movement can be seen on video, which has been dubbed into English.

The museum is beautifully situated in the Churchill Park right next to the Anglican St. Alban's Church, the Citadel and Gefion Fountain on the border of inner Copenhagen and Østerbro.
