Tobacco factories, breweries, printing companies, machine factories and later electronics companies have been the industries, in which Denmark has marked itself globally. The museum constantly strives to complement the exhibitions to carry them up to modern times through collection, research and dissemination. The latest exhibitions show the manufacturer's office from the mid-1970s as well as tobacco production from the 1990s.
Although many types of industrial jobs have today disappeared in favour of robots, modern high technology and automatic production plants, Denmark is in many ways still an industrial society with almost 300,000 employees in the industry, which accounts for approx. 60% of exports.
