THE PERMANENT EXHIBITION

VISIT THE COZY AND ATMOSPHERIC MUSEUM AND GET AN EXPERIENCE OUT OF THE ORDINARY

Tidens Samling is a museum of everyday life. The permanent exhibition’s unique and nostalgic atmosphere brings the 20th century to life. The exhibition consists of nine living rooms from 1900’s to 1990’s with original and authentic interiors from typical Danish homes.

The museum is a hands-on museum where you are allowed to touch the items, sit in the furniture, open the drawers and try on the clothes. You can use all your senses while you take a journey through the Danish past and experience Danish culture.

An 8-year-old boy and his grandmother visit the permanent exhibition. He curiously looks around while his grandmother tells about life during World War 2.

But…” says the boy, “…where is the television?

His grandmother tells him that the television had not yet been invented back then.

Then what did you spend your time doing..?” the boy asks astonished.

Tidens Samling is a place for all generations to meet and exchange memories and rediscover the history of your parents, grandparents and great-grandparent’s childhood.  The many details give the elderly a recollection of early childhood, while children and young people can learn about the lives of past generations.

Tidens Samling also has an area for dressing up. Here children and adults are welcome to try on clothes, shoes and hats from the various decades.
