There are exhibits on everything from Stone Age people in Denmark, to 21st century culture. You could easily spend 2 full days here. I suggest, picking few topics that are of most interest to you and focus on those. Fascinating and interesting displays.

There is a great collection of historical information here. We were limited to two hours because we arrived late afternoon. We could have enjoyed a longer visit. The museum offers fascinating exhibits covering the stone age to modern times.

This is one of the best museums I've ever been to. It has a very extensive history of Denmark, going from the stone age all to modern day. The extensive range of artifacts is phenomenal and it is everything you would want in national museum

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
