It's difficult to get there, but worth the hassle. You will be amazed by the largest diesel engine running gloriously. The exhibits were entertaining and educational too. You can learn a lot about the history of diesel engines and locomotives in general. However, don't wear...More

If you are interested in engineering, particularly marine engineering, a visit is worth a trip to Copenhagen for this alone. Apart from the great engine running (check carefully fo dates/times), the wealth of diesel engine history over the last several decades is another fascination. There...More

In spite of difficulty with finding the correct bus stop, we were able to get to the Diesel House before they ran the big engine. (It was a special day rather than the usual day for this engine and we lucked into it.) It was...More

Well... If you have any interest for large machinery, engines or moving parts what so ever, then this is a must go. Check the webpage for when they start the engines so you get the most out of it. Free admission.
