The Women's Museum
The museum is one of the world's few women's history museums, and is situated in the city's old city hall (1857). In these historic surroundings the focus is firmly on women's lives.
Women's lives past and present
Motherhood and working life; servitude and learning; submissiveness and revolt; and isolation and community are some of the juxtapositions highlighted in the museum's permanent exhibition on ”women’s lives past and present”, with the main emphasis being on the major changes in women’s life and work in the last 200 years.
"The History of Girls and Boys"
The exhibition focuses on the history of childhood throughout civilisation and on the two sexes' different experiences by following a number of girls and boys through their work and their duties, their learning and their play, etc., over the past 150 years.
In addition, varying thematic special exhibitions are shown.
