New Denmark Memorial Museum

New Denmark is a small rural community that owes its name to the Danish immigrants who settled the region in 1872. Although its population is more diversified than it was at that time, the Danish language can still be heard and many people still proudly display their roots.Visit the New Denmark Memorial Museum to learn more about this special community. The museum collection is made up of portraits, farm machinery, small tools, china, books and numerous artefacts that belonged to the local Danish settlers. Typical garments worn by the Danish people of the time are also on display.Each year we celebrate "Founders Day" on the Sunday closest to June 19th. There is a ecumenical worship service in the morning, followed by speakers, songs, and folk dancers in the afternoon.Go to New Denmark and discover the oldest Danish settlement in Canada.
