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

I generally skip museums, as I can't stand the packed tourist spots, standing in line for hours and paying extortionate entry fees. This is one of those things! For around $12 AUD, you get access into the centre and cafe (which is quite famous I...More

I know they will be moving soon, which is a shame because the building is a dream. Hopefully the new location will give the center more space to grow and inspire more architectural fans.

Nice bookstore and cafe, but there is only a single exhibition so you will go through it in less than an hour. Still, if you like architecture it's worth a visit.

On the first floor is a small cafe with four tables in a glass box overlooking the city. Food is good, view is awesome if you can get in the glass box.
