Not a “Coke and Chips” holiday: Museums in Danish coastal tourism

Barbora Gulisova, Lulu Anne Hansen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter, from a historical anthropological perspective, discusses the role of heritage museums in Danish coastal tourism. It is argued that the museum experience is highly contextual making it neces- sary to understand how place specific heritage interacts with tourist holiday motivations and museums understanding of their role as heritage suppliers. The interplay of these factors must be understood to create better bonds between museums and visitors especially in a tourism context. In order to do this, new questions must be asked, and research should move away from binary understandings of demand and supply.
