2014 besluttede Den Gamle By at indrette en lille gade, der viser året 2014. På Hendes Majestæt Dronningens 75-års fødselsdag 16. april året efter omdøbte vi gaden til Dronning Margrethes Gade. Her finder man en håndfuld butikker og to hjem. I artiklen oplyser museumsinspektørerne Anna Wowk Vestergaard, Erik Nellemann Nielsen og Mette Ernst Andersen om tankerne bag og arbejdet med udformningen af den nye del af Den Gamle By.


The museum’s New Street
In the 2014 street, museum visitors are now met with their own time when they step into Den Gamle By. The familiar feeling provides a
safe base for a journey through time, as well as fertile ground for new dialogue across generations. A dialogue that also lets the younger visitors share their memories of the very recent past. Guests can visit the pizzeria, the Single Woman and the Rainbow Family, and get a closer look at Blockbuster, Danske Bank, the Consol Solcenter tanning salon and 7-Eleven. Visitors encounter the pop hits of the period and taste the favourite pizza of the year, but the street also tells stories of businesses that time did not treat so well. The exhibitions have been created in close cooperation with participants such as the inhabitants of the homes and employees of the businesses that run the shops.
