History
Thorkild Stauning was the first Danish prime minister of the Social-Democrat party, and he held the position for more than 15 years in total. He was born in 1873 and grew up in a working class family in Copenhagen. He entered politics in 1906, and is especially known for “The Kanslergade settlement” of 1935 which was negotiated in Stauning’s own home in central Copenhagen. The Worker’s Museum celebrates Stauning this week with lots of different activities for children who are interested in experiencing the life of a working class boy who rose to the highest political position in our country.
February 10th to 18th from 10-16.

Biology
How does the plaice change color? Who hides in the ellgrass? And why is hiding even necessary for some sea creatures? At the Øresund Aquarium in Elsinore these and many other questions will be answered by a biology expert, and you will also get a unique chance to come close to and even touch some of the sea creatures. Winter Break activities in weeks 7 and 8 at the aquarium also includes a quiz, a film screening about oceanic plastic pollution - as well as feeding and dissecting selected animals.
The aquarium is open all weekdays from 10-17.
Touching the animal happens all weekdays from 11:25, 13:35 and 14:25.

Arts
Art museums are often reserved for quiet observation, but the National Gallery of Denmark alters that completely during the Winter Break where young ones are given the chance to become artists for a day. Their exhibition ‘Art in the Making’ poses the question of how a work of art is created? All aspiring young artists can find inspiration for their own masterpiece from great masters like Rembrandt and Krøyer. In-house artists will assist in the creative proces.
February 10th to 18th every day from 11.30-16.30. Also every Saturday and Sunday in February.

Science
The Danish Museum of Science and Technology, situated in Elsinore, celebrates the 60th birthday of the first Danish computer (DASK) ever made. For children, this means the chance to write secret messages in code language, impossible for any parental deciphering. Inspired by the old computer, binary numbers and basic coding is part of the activities, where you can try to code your own mobile robot.
In week 7, the museum is open every day from 10-17. All children’s activities are on daily from 11-15.30.
