Occupation Museum, Aarhus

The Occupation Museum (Danish: Besættelsesmuseet) in Aarhus, Denmark is a history museum dedicated to present the history of Aarhus during the German occupation in the Second World War. The museum is situated in the historical centre, the Latin Quarter, in Midtbyen and shares the building of the Women's Museum. The building is a listed structure and it is the former city hall and police station of the city, constructed in 1856-57. In the later part of the war it served as the Gestapo headquarters for Jutland after the university buildings - where the Gestapo previously resided - were destroyed during an air raid by the Royal Air Force.
