I think the museum should be renamed to "Family life in Copenhagen". There were more displays of what a typical home might have looked like, than there were of any historical workplaces. What made it even more bemusing, was that very little of it was...More

Especially liked the subtitled short movie about industrialization and how workers' lives changed. Also the exhibition about slavery fitted with the theme. Could have been more telling if more was translated into English.

This is a museum dedicated to the life of the average Danish worker. It is located in a beautiful large centrally located historic town house (although I think it has always been a place dedicated to the Social Democrats as a meeting place and HQ)....More

While spending a few days in Copenhagen, we visited this very interesting museum. The history of the working class Danes, their struggles and even their homes reminded me of our own Scottish industrial past. There was plenty to see, even for the younger children, including...More

I really like this museum as it had a fascinating story to tell about the lives of working class people. You realise the importance of the union movement in improving people's lives - I particularly liked the 8/8/8 slogan - 8 hours work/8hours rest/8 hours...More

I’m glad I came across this place. It reminds me of a smaller version of the Tenement Museum in NYC. The life of poor and working families is well represented. There is a faithful representation of the working class apartment that was resided in for...More

The museum gives a wonderful view of what life and work was like for Danes in the 19th and 20th centuries.

It's a bit difficult to find but the reward is great: one of the most interesting museums I know. The conservators have made a huge effort to recreate the whole history of Danish people, from one little and poor country to a well fare state...More

I'd expected something about the history of the labour movement in Denmark but there was nothing about that. Rather a collection of rooms from a house from early 20th century and a history of how work has been transformed by technology, but not done in...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
