Frihedsmuseet - Museum of Danish Resistance, Copenhagen: 9 reviews and 20 photos
The weather was so fine that we didn't plan on seeing too many museums in Copenhagen. We wanted to visit the NY Carlsberg Glypothek but unfortunately it was closed (undergoing renovation). So instead we walked up to Churchill Park and went to the Frihedsmuseet, which tells the story of Danish resistance in WW2.
I always enjoy visiting museums about resistance movements though they often can be a little biased in how they tell the story. However, the Frihedsmuseet was very objective. They told the story of the fairly small resistance movement in Denmark without exaggerating their exploits. Ornaments collected from Danish concentration camp prisoners were displayed as well as instruments used by the resistance such as printing presses. Exhibits also told of life in Denmark during the war and the relationship between the resistance movement and the Danish government.
The museum is free (always nice in Copenhagen) and is open every day except Monday.
