Aalborg Defence- and Garrison Museum

Only in Aalborg, can you see a complete exhibition of the country's total defences. In the museum, you will find cars, planes, motorcycles and tanks, and you are welcome to try sitting in most of them. The city of 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 the entire family an exciting look at the weapons and equipment used by the armed forces in defending Denmark, since World War II. 

Orders and medals

The exhibit 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.
