Under the leadership of Robert Neiiendam (1880–1966), the head of the Theatre Museum at the Court Theatre, it was moved in 1922 to the old Court Theatre.[1]

The museum deals with Danish history theater history and seeks to document the history of professional theater through the collection of pictures, letters, costumes, props and models of theater buildings and set designs. The Court Theatre is actually part of the museum exhibition, since the public has free access to walk around the theater building. The auditorium is also used for various events such as readings, lectures, concerts and small guest acting. Television program such as Det Nye Talkshow - med Anders Lund Madsen is broadcast live from the Court Theatre.[2]
