Circus Museum

Step into the marvellous world of the circus and experience fun props, beautiful costumes, amazing photos and rare footage.

The museum displays the life of the circus, the family traditions and the different acts you can find in the circus from fleas to elephants and clowns to acrobats. You can experience some of the greatest artists from the variety scene and circus ring such as Charlie Rivel the clown, whose famous guitar is on display, Truxa the magician whose famous mind-reading trick is revealed, Paulina Schumann and many more. Every Sunday and every opening day in July, you can try out everything from juggling to trapeze. 

We want you to explore the exhibition: Press the buttons, open the hatches, play the games and a new world will reveal itself.

For a more fun-filled experience the children can try on some of the costumes in the exhibition or you could try our quiz or circus challenge as a family .

You can explore the wonderful world of circus at the exhibition, packed with surprises and interaction.

Try and walk in the clown’s footsteps, experience the magic of conjuring tricks or step into the ring yourself.

The Circus Museum is located in Avedørelejren, an old barracks.
