A museum in 1927

In the early 1900s most Danish market towns set up a museum to display prehistoric artefacts and local history. This promoted people's interest in their common past and in Denmark's nationhood. 

The interior is inspired by photographs of Danish museums, exhibitions and displays from before 1927. This small museum exhibits objects from ages throughout time such as the Stone Age and Middle Ages, and the Rennaissance.

The displays, which are quite compact and placed randomly, shows objects used in the old ages, such as arrowheads, charred bones, textiles and pots. Amonst the displays is a plaster casts of the Golden Horns; a Danish national treasure.

The Musaeum shows what a museum in a Danish market town could look like, therefore the signs explaining the objects are written in Danish, to maintain the authenticity. The sign above the entrance shows how museum was spelled in 1927. The doors are usually open between 11am and 2pm.
