Overview
More
In September 2014, the Danish Music Museum reopened with its unique exhibition in new premises at Rosenorns alle 22, Frederiksberg C. The new premises are situated in the former "Broadcasting House", which also houses the Royal Danish Academy of Music. This is a unique "house of music" in which the museum's collections bring the living music of the practising musicians into a cultural historical context, and in which the living music supplies the museum's collections with a sounding dimension. The museum's refurbished exhibition is divided into two "routes" for the visitor - a route which deals with development in Denmark from the bronze lurs onwards, and a route which takes the Middle Ages as its starting point and continues through the various European periods, until both routes meet in globalization of the 20th century. A special part of the exhibition - The "Kunstkammer" - displays quite special, beautiful or rare objects from different periods. The rear part of the exhibition floor - The World - is reserved for temporary exhibitions, starting with an interesting exhibition about the Far East, featuring instruments from China, Japan and Korea. The new premises also house "Det Klingende Museum" - a new project for children and young people, which allows them to explore all kinds of musical instruments within three main categories: classical music, rhythmic music and traditional music.

Why aren't more people visiting this museum, it's great. Tablets are free and really helpful, they enable you to learn and hear sound clips. The studio room is great fun. So music lover or not just visit n

This is a superb little museum regardless of how big musical fan you are. Virtually all musical instruments from 16th century onwards are exhibited. It is modestly priced and you can enter it as many times you like in a day. Highlight is the studio...More

We only had about 1 hr to spend here, but we totally enjoyed it. It is in the same building as the Royal Danish Academy of Music near Forum Metro station. There is no big sign, so one could easily miss it. The museum provides...More

I found the museum interesting but it might depend on how much you like music/history. The tablets provided were great, and you can read about the instruments and, with some, listen to music played with that type of instrument. Music is also triggered in different...More
