Danish Museum, Tranquebar

The Danish Museum has an exquisite display and preservation of several important artifacts from the times of the Danish Settlement. Articles preserved here include items that precede this time period, most of which were originally discovered by the Danish settlers of Tranquebar.

The Museum is under the direct supervision of the Archeological Survey Of India. It houses several rare copies of Dutch Manuscripts, porcelain ware, terracotta figurines and much more. It is also dedicated to the preservation of several pieces of weaponry from the days of yore.

Each piece displayed here is an excellent example of craftsmanship. The articles preserved here also include several swords, daggers, shields and spears. The museum is located inside the awe-inspiring structure of Fort Dansborg, which is situated near the seaside.
