Aalborg Defence and Garrison Museum

In Aalborg you have the chance to visit a complete exhibition about the Danish defence force and the period of occupation during WWII. In the museum, you will find cars, planes, motorcycles, tanks, and much more.

Aalborg has been a garrison town since 1779, and after World War II and during the Cold War period, it was the largest garrison in Denmark.

The museum offers an exciting look at the weapons and equipment used by the armed forces in defending Denmark since World War II. The exhibition includes objects from the Army, the Air force, the Home Guard, the Police and the Civil Defence, World War II and Aalborg as a garrison town.

To a great extent, you are welcome to touch or even sit in the different exhibition objects.
