Amagermuseet


Amagermuseet gives you an insight into the history of the Dutch immigrants and their influence on the identity of Amager. The museum is an evocative open-air museum, which consists of two farms with interior from Amager. In July farmhands roll up their sleeves and the museum comes alive. The children receive a rating book, in which they receive a stamp for a job well done on the farm. And many tasks must be taken care of. The farmhands must wash clothes, dig up vegetables, do needlework, take care of the animals and much more. As a reward, they are served pancakes in the cosy summer kitchen afterwards.  
The exhibitions of the museum display traditional costumes, expressive wall and ceiling decorations as well as paintings by great Danes, which have been inspired by the unique culture of Amager.  
Chickens, geese, rabbits, goats and sheep live in the stables and pens during the summer, and in the vegetable garden, crops like potatoes, carrots, cabbages, leeks, herbs and dahlia grow.  
The café of the museum offers coffee and cake, and the shop of the museum sells home-made delicacies and nostalgic goods.  
Experience rural idyll in historic surroundings, just 10 km from Copenhagen.
