The Danish Museum System
AbstractThis paper deals with the Danish Museum System and presents a detailed examination of the Danish Museums, though restricted to museums devoted to cultural history rather than arts. The emphasis of the paper is on the system rather than the individual museum, in marked contrast to most contributions in the literature where the individual museum is analyzed. Due to the information policy of the Danish government it is possible to get closer look of the actual workings of the museums than is standard in the literature. The paper concludes that the Danish museums are autonomous to a degree that makes it unlikely that an optimal system of museums is achieved. The paper concludes by discussing some proposals for rearrangement of the museum system.
