This museum chronicles the working class from 1870 to the present, with evocative life-size "day-in-the-life-of" exhibits, among them reconstructions of a city street and re-creations of apartments, including the home of a brewery worker, his wife, and eight children. Changing exhibits focusing on Danish and international social issues are often excellent. The exhibitions have explanatory texts in English. The museum also has a 19th-century-style café and beer hall serving
old-fashioned Danish specialties and a '50s-style coffee shop.
