The museum displays a unique collection of historical artefacts from the island’s military history ranging from the 17th century to the present day.
A large part of the museum is focused on the history of the local Danish military units, but the museum’s exhibition on the Second World War includes leftovers from the German and Soviet occupations – incl. weapons, uniforms and a German Enigma encryption device (known from such films as ‘The Imitation Game’ and ‘U-571’).
GERMANY’S WARTIME SECRET – THE ENIGMA
See the museum’s German Enigma encryption machine from the Second World War. There are only 284 machines left that were used during the war. The museum’s Enigma was discarded in a ditch at the end of the war, when the German troops on the island surrendered to Soviet forces.
The museum is closed for the 2019 season. See you in 2020.
