The museum is a very classic museum - in the sense that it is artefact heavy as opposed to interactive and digital. The collections were incredibly well curated; the displays were easy to read and follow through the different rooms. We only visited a few...More

Lots to do and see including toys through the ages. We spent a few hours here, it was good that you can take photos and nothing is closed off, unlike in the UK. The only complaint would be the cafe, we were seated at a...More

Traditional in a good way! It is still packed with fascinating artefacts, rather than dumbed down with audio-visual presentations which you could watch at home on the internet. Beautiful costumes, paintings, period rooms, toys, dolls houses etc etc. Good for a wet morning or afternoon.

My daughter and I enjoyed our visit. There was so much to see and the history of Denmark is fascinating. We especially liked the Royal Crown made of gold which had been lost.

This museum is fantastic. Lots of exhibits I’ve never seen elsewhere and the building is packed full of interesting objects. The museum is great for kids with loads going on, but it’s a manageable size without being overwhelming. Highly recommend.

Beautiful museum, classic National History museum. Go for the Danish specific areas, they are very well done! The session of Danish history from 1600-2000 was so cool, you could spend an hour walking through and reading! The Viking part on the floor level is also...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

I spent about 3 hours but in the end the time I had for their exhibition on recent Danish history was much too short which was a pity. So for me 3-4 hours would have been just right.
