The Danish Museum of Hunting and Forestry
The Danish Museum of Hunting and Forestry is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. With 3,000 square metres of exhibition space, the museum presents the history of hunting and forestry in Denmark from the Stone Age to the present day.
The museum?s exhibits, which illustrate the history of hunting and forestry, include weapons, hunting equipment, phaetons and trophies from Denmark, Greenland and the Faeroe Islands. Visitors will also find a large collection of Danish game, along with various pieces of forestry equipment and exhibits from the old timber trade and industry.
The exhibition includes the world?s only reconstructed aurochs, alongside an exhibition on hunting with bows and arrows through 14,000 years.
The museum has been designed to appeal to visitors of all ages, including young children, with plenty of opportunities to pet the stuffed animals.
The Danish Museum of Hunting and Forestry, which is housed in the outbuildings of the former Hirschholm Palace, has a beautiful garden with tables and benches. Refreshments are on sale in the museum?s café.
There are changing special exhibitions and arrangements throughout the season. For a programme of events, visit http://www.jagtskov.dk/(please note that the text is only available in Danish).
