|20th birthday of the museum|
On Saturday, June 17, the Cold War Museum at Langelandsfort opened its gates to celebrate two anniversaries. First of all, we celebrated the 20th birthday of the museum, but also the 60th birthday of the Danish Frogmen Corps.
The following activities were planned:
At 11.30 the opening of a special anniversary-exhibition on the occasion of the jubilee of the Frogmen Corps;
At 12.00 the Danish journalist and expert on Russian affairs, Leif Davidsen, lectured on Danish-Russian relations, then and now.
10.00 – 15.00: Free tours in historical military vehicles around the compound of the museum.
Sausages and cocoa were served free of charge. There was no charge for the entrance to the museum.
On Saturday, 17 June, 2017, the Museum celebrated not only its 20th birthday, but also the fact that it had grown into one of the oldest Cold War museums in Europe.
At the same time, it also celebrated an even more important fact: on that very day, sixty years ago, the Danish Frogmen Corps was inaugurated. The latter fact is illustrated by an exhibition about the first years after 1957.
