The Cisterns (Cisternerne)

The Cisterns (Cisternerne) - Museums in Frederiksberg

In the old water reservoir, deep below Søndermarken’s green lawns, lies a large underground world that never sees the light of day. Down here, the darkness, cold and moisture envelop you in a world reminiscent of forgotten cathedrals and gloomy catacombs. The Cisterns are an event and exhibition space that exploits the unique architecture and the special climate.

The Cisterns were built by Københavns Vandforsyning (Copenhagen Water Utility) as a height reservoir in 1856. When the construction was completed three years later, it helped solve the serious water supply problems of the day.

Today, the Cisterns are one of the most popular and distinctive of Frederiksberg’s museums. They provide the setting for art exhibitions and various events, all of which are based on the architecture and unique climate of the venue.

Address: Søndermarken, opposite Frederiksberg Palace.

Open: See homepage for opdated opening hours. (Closed from feb. 3rd –  apr. 15th 2018.)

The Storm P. Museum

The Storm P. Museum in Frederiksberg

Storm P. was a personality who, if anyone, took Danish humour and self-knowledge into the 20th century. In his countless daily strips, he portrayed life in a way that made him a part of Danish identity and cultural heritage. Storm P.’s works are about being human and how we act in relation to each other, and the museum paints a picture of a unique Danish artist who, even today, can make us take a look at ourselves and the society around us through fresh eyes.

At the museum, you meet the man and the artist Storm P. and his humorous and quirky universe. His life, his peers and his artistic work are depicted in audio, photographs, film and newspaper clips – naturally with numerous examples of his versatile and diverse production – from his colourful and expressionistic watercolours and oil paintings to the familiar and beloved cartoons, philosophical flies and hand-drawn characters. Besides the permanent exhibitions and collections, the museum also has changing exhibitions.

A gem among Frederiksberg’s museums, and definitely worth a visit if you want to be entertained and inspired. The Storm P. Museum is a museum of humour and satire in art and Danish cartoon history. The museum presents changing exhibitions in the different genres.

Address: Pile Allé 2

The Bakkehus Museum

The Bakkehus Museum in Frederiksberg

The literary, culture historical Bakkehus Museum is located in the apartment where the couple Kamma and Knud Lyne Rahbek lived from 1802 until they died in 1829 and 1830 respectively. The museum provides a vivid impression of the private home that was visited by so many of the great writers, artists and scientists of the Golden Age, and which combined currents from the Enlightenment and Romanticism. The atmosphere of the home has been preserved in a harmony between the environment and authenticity.

Bakkehuset dates back to the 17th century, and the name refers to its location on Valby Bakke, the biggest hill in the Copenhagen area. Among other things, Bakkehuset once served as a coaching inn and was, for many years, a detached, four-winged farm.

Besides the permanent exhibitions and collections, the museum also has changing exhibitions.

Address: Rahbeks Allé 23, DK-1801 Frederiksberg C

Open: Tuesday–Sunday 10.00–16.00, closed on Mondays
