This entire exhibition space can be done in 15 minutes. Tops. Even with a baby strapped to you! 0 design and 0 architecture and nothing beyond a cafe and a store. Cost around 30$ to get in. Wow! I have never been scammed this bad....More

A terrific place to visit if you're already a fan of Scandinavian architecture and are interested in how its principles are currently being put into practice. The temporary exhibits are always interesting and connect with you in unexpected ways. Moreover, with the Copenhagen Card, affordability...More

We're so sorry about the confusion! As you found out we have indeed moved to BLOX at Bryghuspladsen 10. During the process of moving and opening up in our new space we didn't get the old signs at our old exhibition-space at Strandgade (Gammel Dok)...More

Copenhagen's most well publicised tourist trap. This 'attraction' allures through the illusory indication that multiple exhibits will educate on the history of Danish architecture, prestigious names and the leading principles of Scandinavian design. The reality is a couple of small rooms, saying very little, with...More

Beware! Despite its grand-sounding name, this museum is underwhelming, even for Copenhagen's generally low standard. They haven't got a permanent exhibition or anything remotely informative... so if you happen to be unlucky enough to visit the museum at a time without any of the usually...More

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
