Armoured Vehicles

Denmark’s largest collection of military armoured vehicles with examples of all the tanks used by the Danish army since 1945.

The Army’s Tanks

The hall features a number of the tanks the Danish army have used since Denmark joined NATO in 1949. They include the US Sherman tank, used on the Western Front during World War II and from 1950 also in Denmark. It was replaced by the British Centurion tank, which for many years was the army’s most powerful tank, until it in turn gave way to the German Leopard tank. The hall also houses an example of the famous ‘White Leopard’, which took part in a skirmish near Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina – so-called ‘Operation Bøllebank’.
