Danes with Wolves
Why do wolves evoke such strong emotions in us? Do we have room for wolves in Denmark? Do we have room for wild nature?
These and many other questions are put into perspective in our new exhibition "Danes with Wolves", which is Denmarks first large exhibition about the relationship between human and wolves.
"Danes with Wolves" is based on cultural-historical myths, current debates about wolves, rumors about wolf killings and research on the movement of wolves in Denmark - and makes the audience reflect on their own view on nature and make them wiser about why the wolf split the opinion among the population.
The wolf's close biological relationship with dogs is also brought into focus through an exhibition of 10 wolves combined with the museum's unique collection of mounted dogs. In the meeting between wolves and Danes, the exhibition will provide insight into why the predators have come to Denmark, and most importantly, what they do to us.
The exhibition is aimed at all ages - children, however, preferably accompanied by adults, as there are both dramatic scenes and authentically preserved wolves and dogs.
