COVID-19 – We look after our visitors and employees

As DGB covers a very large area and offers visitors plenty of space, at a very early stage, the Danish authorities rated Den Gamle By a location, at which there is a very low risk of exposure to COVID-19.

We naturally do our utmost to safeguard both you and our employees against infection, and we have therefore implemented precautionary measures in Den Gamle By.

  • clear signposting of recommendations on appropriate conduct
  • hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the museum
  • Plexiglass screens in the shops
  • increased cleaning frequency indoors and outdoors
  • made it more likely that you will meet our role players in the streets rather than in the houses

Please observe the following:

  • bring a valid Corona passport. From the age of 15.
  • Everyone at the age of 12 and up are required to wear mouth piece or shield.
    (Unless you are exempt from the requirement)
  • stay at home if you or anyone in your company show(s) even the slightest sign of being infected with corona virus
  • cough or sneeze into your sleeve
  • keep your distance from other visitors and the museum employees
  • wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer during your museum visit

If we learn that a visitor has tested positive for COVID-19, we will examine the visitor's movements in the museum and trace close contacts as well as we can. If, during our mapping, we discover that there has been a high risk of infection, the people affected will be asked to take a COVID-19 test. For the same reason, we ask all our visitors and employees to download and use the "smitte|stop" app (Danish public health authorities' app to contain the spread of COVID-19).

If you have any questions about our precautionary measures, you are very welcome to contact the museum before your visit. By phone: +45 8612 3188 or by email:

We look forward to welcoming you to a safe museum experience.
