The festival will also feature the delights of the Højt Skum restaurant, where it is possible to buy hot meals prepared with beer.

International Museum Day

May 18; various venues in Cph

With over 145 countries and 35,000 museums participating, International Museum Day is a growing celebration to raise awareness, the organisers explain, of how “museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, co-operation and peace among people.”

This year’s theme is ‘Museums and contested histories: Saying the unspeakable in museums.’

By embracing the taboo, this day aims to highlight what brings us together as humans.
