The Danish Jewish Museum emphasizes close coordination between its collecting and research functions and its interaction with the public. Therefore the museum’s research projects include active collecting of objects and source materials to illuminate central issues within the museum’s sphere of responsibility. 



Research in the Collection 

In addition to the museum’s own research projects and publications, the museum serves as an information center which receives a constant stream of visits from scholars and students from both Denmark and abroad, who do research in the collections or consult the resources and library of the museum.
