THE MAGIC BOX – Shipping, shopping and the global consumer.
From the 26th of April 2018.
How global is your breakfast or the products in your shopping cart? The upcoming exhibition ‘THE MAGIC BOX – Shipping, Shopping and the global consumer’ focuses on the consumer culture and the signifiance of shipping for you and me.
Why is there a perfume by Jean Paul Gaultier, old film posters, cigarette packs, toys and a Donald Duck comic at M/S?
The Gate to the World
At the harbour, the sailor bids farewell to his life as a son, husband and father and embarks into another world – that of the ship and sea.

Navigation and World Views
Sail through a world of navigational instruments of times past, while surrounded by sea, coasts, stars, and myths.
Ships of All Times
A treasure trove of model ships and ship portraits.
In the Shadow of War
The fear and dread experienced by Danish seamen sailing as passive participants on the warships of World War I and World War II.
