About the Museum


The Workers Museum is located in the Workers Assembly Building in central Copenhagen, which dates from 1879. The museum aims to collect, preserve, explore, and share the cultural heritage of the Danish workers movement and the history of working conditions and everyday life in Denmark. At the museum, visitors can experience the everyday life of Denmark in the 1950s and visit the Sørensen Family who moved to Copenhagen in 1885. Visitors can explore the development of industrial work through various exhibitions and step into the lives of working class kids in The Workers Museum for Children. Visitors to the museum can also have a cup of 1950s chicory coffee in the original coffee shop and enjoy a traditional Danish lunch in the authentic basement restaurant from 1892. The museum is also home to a special research library on the history of workers.
