Circus Museum

Learn to juggle, try the trapeze or practise your acrobatics with trained circus performers at this museum.

Let your inner clown out at The Circus Museum, near Copenhagen, where you can join its free circus school every Sunday and explore behind the scenes of the creative and bohemian world of the circus. 

The museum is packed with interactive surprises and takes you on a journey through circus life with costumes, photos and plenty to enjoy. Walk in a clown’s footsteps, experience the magic of conjuring tricks or step into the ring yourself.

Join the free circus school

Every Sunday from 11-12:30, and every day in July, there is a free circus school for anyone who wants to try their hand at acrobatics, juggling, trapeze and more. If you get bitten by the circus bug, you can buy equipment in the museum shop and carry on developing your skills afterwards.

The Circus Museum is located in Avedørelejren, an old barracks in Hvidore, just outside Copenhagen.
