The bunker museum in Fredericia - a piece of Danish history

During Denmark's occupation from 1940 to 1945, around 5.800 shelters were built in Denmark, of which 70 were set up in Fredericia. The bunker museum is located in one of the 70 civilian shelters. The bunker is a double bunker with two domes, both of which are set up as a museum with objects and descriptions of life in the bunker and in Fredericia during the Occupation.

The special exhibition in the bunker has been created in collaboration between the Fredericia Military Historical Association and the Museums in Fredericia, and it is the Fredericia Military Historical Association that is responsible for displaying the bunker during the Bunker Museum's opening hours.
