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 established in Fredericia. The Bunker Museum is located in one of these 70 civilian shelters. The bunker is a double bunker with two domes, both of which are furnished as museums with exhibits and descriptions of life in the bunker and in Fredericia during the Occupation.

The special exhibition in the bunker is created in collaboration between the Fredericia Military History Association and the Museums in Fredericia, and it is the Fredericia Military History Association that conducts tours of the bunker during the Bunker Museum's opening hours.
