Welcome to the Museum of Energy!
The Museum of Energy conveys the history of energy and the climate change mitigation. We do this with a particular focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals; No. 7 Affordable and Clean Energy and No. 12 Responsible consumption and production. The museum connects the past, the present and the future and is full of stories that will inspire across generations.
Our exhibitions are located in 8 different buildings, in the beautiful park that surrounds the museum and in the forest between the buildings.
The Museum of Energy is located next to Lake Tange, the body of water of which still drives the turbines at Denmark’s largest hydropower plant – Tangeværket. This is renewable energy at its best – right next to the museum to experience and learn from.
At the Museum of Energy, we have plenty of room for powering up – or down. You are most welcome!
