Kulturmuseum East starts locally and broadens the perspective from there.
In our museum building in Faxe we show exhibits, which are founded in local phenomena and connect them to the bigger picture.
Our special exhibition on World War II tells of the German occupation of Denmark from a local perspective: what was daily life like with blackouts, air-raid alarms, rationing and resistance?
From here, we examine the bigger questions: how do values become clear in times of crises? And what do we do to keep that, which we are at risk of losing?
The first owner was Marie Petersen, who opened the salon in 1911. In 1951 her daughter Johanne took over the salon.
Johanne ran the salon until the age of 88. The interior are things from the alle the years the salon existed and makes for a rare glimpse into a time warp of everyday life.
