Remember the 1970s

Do you remember 1970s?
Experience an entire neighbourhood from 1974 in Den Gamle By, The Old Town Museum. You can visit six different homes, a pastry shop, a radio and TV shop and a gynaecologist's clinic.

Visit the danes not-so-distant past, or step into the lives of their parents and grandparents.

In 1974 Denmark is 
- an affluent society after years of steady economic growth
- a new member of the EEC
- a country just beginning to feel the effects of the oil crisis

The Tårnborg corner building
In the 1974 town district you can visit Tårnborg, which is a corner building housing three flats, where you can drop in on the nuclear family, the commune, the school headmaster living on his own, and 70s shops. Don't forget to drop by the radio shop with hot music of the time sounding from the speakers, or the tearoom where you can taste their wonderfully delicious goose breasts.

The harbour-front House in Havnegade
A visit to the house on the harbour front in Havnegade will provide some of the same atmosphere that many Danes will remember from the popular 70s TV comedy series 'Huset på Christianshavn (The House in Christianshavn).

In the building there are 6 flats where you get an insight into private homes, workshops, and backyards. And do also visit the Bent J jazz bar where you can feel the authentic atmosphere in this former local pub.
