You will get a feeling of what it was like to live back then and to see how Danes made their way of living, for example by talking to the live actors dressed in clothes from that time. From the outside, you can see how the shape and colors of the buildings have changed and inside you can have a look at things connected to some great authentic Danish musicians and politicians from a revolutionary time. Here, you’ll get an idea of how these influential people have contributed to shaping Danish culture.
