Oceans of Freedom – Adventurer Troels Kløvedal and life on the ship Nordkaperen.
Troels Kløvedal was a renowned Danish writer and touring sailor. The exhibition portrays his magical life on the seven seas and his encounters with cultures from all over the world.
BIG dock is the new permanent exhibition, which gives visitors the opportunity to get close to the star architect Bjarke Ingels’ thoughts, visions and creative process about the creation of the already iconic underground museum building that houses M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark.
