We are happy to announce that The National Museum of Denmark joined The Commons on Flickr today. The National Museum is many museums in one: It is Denmark’s largest museum of cultural history and includes the Open Air Museum, the Museum of Danish Resistance, Royal Jelling and 9 other museums.
The museum’s photographs come from all over the world, and cover many periods. In the museum’s photostream you can explore beautiful photos from Japan taken between 1860 and 1910, occupied Denmark during World War II, and documentary photos of Africa and the Virgin Islands (then called the Danish West Indies) with much more content to come.
Help make the photographs you enjoy more discoverable by adding tags and leaving comments. Your contributions and knowledge make these photos even richer. You can check out the whole selection in their sets, and we hope you enjoy this collection as much as we do.
