    The museum presents the history of the first Polish economic migrantsis and is open in the summer months.

    On the 10 of June the tourist season at the Museum The Polish Barrack on the island of Lolland was inaugurated with a celebratory picnic. The museum is located in a former residential building for seasonal workers („Polakkasernen”) built in 1911 for Polish women, who were travelling to Lolland to work in the sugar beet production. The museum of Taagerup is open in the summer months and presents the history of the first Polish economic migrants coming to Denmark at the turn of the 19th and the 20th century. At present the museum is steered by director Mr. Torsten Elsvor in cooperation with the Association of the Friends of the Polish Barrack Museum and its’ chairman Mr. Marek Kocuba.
