History Comes Alive at the Workers Museum

At the Workers Museum, you are brought straight back to everyday life of working-class families throughout the last 150 years, giving you a strong feel for how they helped build the foundations for Denmark’s welfare society.

You can visit the Sørensen family’s two-room flat and see how a working-class family consisting of a mother, father and eight children lived in 1915.

You can also explore the museum’s changing special exhibitions – and be impressed by the magnificent banquet hall, which was extensively restored in 2021. Young visitors can have plenty of fun in the Children’s Workers Museum by experiencing the past times of their great-grandmothers.

Exhibitions at the Workers Museum

The Workers Museum is a living history museum, evoking the past to present-day visitors. Furthermore, its changing special exhibitions also help make history feel relevant to us today. The museum has plenty to offer in terms of issues such as the general development of society, community spirit, working conditions, everyday life and identity.

In the period 27 June 2022-1 March 2025, the Workers Museum presents the special exhibition ANKER - an Exceptional Life about the Danish former prime minister Anker Jørgensen (1922-2016).

Traditional Danish Treats

In the cosy, atmospheric basement underneath the Workers Museum, you can get a taste of truly traditional Danish food.

Here, Café & Ølhalle '1892' serves home-made, organic and sustainably sourced traditional open sandwiches in a historic setting that is well worth a visit in itself.
