Library and Archive


Welcome to the library and archive of the Workers Museum. We have been gathering pieces of the working-class history and the Danish Union history since 1909. The archive contains books, diaries, magazines and lots of other material concerning Danish workers history.  Alongside these materials, we are the protectors of a big museum collection that we keep record of.

Everybody is welcome to use and study the collections within our Library and Archive.

When using historical records and material (from the archive) for the first time, please let us know by email:

We will let you know when the ordered books or other materials are ready for you, either to take home or to study at our open study rooms at the Workers Museum in Rømersgade 22. The study rooms are open for studying in regular opening hours.
