150 years of working-class and labour movement history is brought vividly to life at one of Copenhagen’s cosiest museums right by the Nørreport station.

History comes alive at the Workers Museum

At the Workers Museum, you are brought straight into the everyday lives of working 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, seeing how a working-class family comprising 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 is undergoing extensive renovation in 2021. Young visitors can have plenty of fun in the Children’s Workers Museum, going back in time to when their great-grandmother was a child.

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 offers you plenty of perspective on issues such as the general development of society, community spirit, working conditions, everyday life and identity.

In 2021, the Workers Museum presents the exhibition Activist about protest movements and people fighting for their beliefs.

Traditional Danish treats

In the cosy, atmospheric cellar 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.
