Our museum is a national research and development programme, which is now closed. Comprising five Danish universities and eight museum partners 2016-2021, Our Museum has facilitated new forms of citizen engagement by studying and developing how museums interact with the public in innovative ways. 

We have been keen to understand how museums’ innovative practices of public interaction handle the concepts of enlightenment and entertainment, since these concepts operate as key dimensions of museums’ societal engagement in the past as well as today. Through the programme’s 13 projects we have designed, documented and evaluated how forms of public interaction and societal engagement have changed - and can change - to benefit citizens and society at large. 

Our Museum was supported by the Nordea-fonden, the VELUX FONDEN  and the programme partners.
