Hvorfor opstod folkemuseet? Var det Bernhard Olsens skyld eller lå det i tiden?

Why did the Danish Folk Museum come into being?

Holger Rasmussen has (1979) written a standard biography on Bernhard Olsen (1836-1922), who founded the museum in 1879, opened it in 1885 and in 1901 established the open-air museum, Frilandsmuseet, at Lyngby as a part of the museum. In his paper he asks whether the museum was the product of an age or the creation of a specific personality - Bernhard Olsen.
