  8. 8. SUMMARIES · selected exhibition projects · #4 Maritime attractions at Limfjord Museum Limfjord Museum presented Kvorning Design & Communication with the exciting challenge of establishing a completely new activity centre in the museum’s new building. The project was completed in record time; it only took eight months from the day the ground was broken until the building opened with its new exhibits. The exhi- bits capture the atmosphere in a vivid narrative about life around the fjord, Limfjord - about fishing, hunting, daily routines and much more. The histories are told through tableaux, scene-setting graphics, projectors and motion pictures. First and foremost, however, the exhibit contains a number of typical vessels - boats, kayaks and other smaller craft that have sailed the waters of Limfjord through the years. These compelling major display items are the most important scenic installations.

In an exciting and surprising fashion, the museum pro- vides loads of information about Denmark's history during the Cold War as well as the story of the installation.
