Danish Museum Of Art And Design - Review

Designmuseum Danmark, the biggest design library in Scandinavia, was established in the early 20th century and is dedicated to Danish design and crafts. In the museum you can see the designs of legends like Arne Jacobsen, Kaare Klint and Jacob Jensen. The museum has a collection of furniture built in the country throughout the 20th century along with rare Chinese and German porcelain articles, ceramics, fabrics and glass artefacts.

The Designmuseum is accommodated in Frederick's Hospital that dates back to 1757 and is itself a building of interest. Along with historic designs, the place houses modern and contemporary art, industrial designs and also has a library that holds more than 1000 journals. The small auditorium of the museum can accommodate 120 people and is used for lectures, seminars and concerts. If you are visiting the city in time for a show by Copenhagen Philharmonic, don’t miss out on watching the show in the Designmuseum auditorium. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Copenhagen itinerary 2 days.

Danish Museum Of Art And Design, Copenhagen Reviews

  • Love this place. besides the permanent exhibitions which showcases many Danish product designs, there were other interesting exhibits - one about the influence of Japanese designs over Danish designs, various few smaller exhibition areas, as well as another about fashion and fabric throughout different eras. If you like to spend time looking at design stuff then you should spare a little more time for this place! i was a little short of time, having spent a little less than 2 hours inside. wouldn't hurt to come earlier because there's a nice cafe you could chill at too if you have too much time.

  • Spent the afternoon here and whilst I didn’t really relate to the Japan exhibition the Danish design and the Chair exhibitions were superb. Certainly worth an afternoon of your time whilst in Copenhagen. On a side note, one of the cafe staff was also one of the most well spoken people I’ve ever met! Made for a pleasant coffee before we started wandering around!

  • Most of it is not about danish design but instead there is a huge section about Japan. It feels like they don't know what to fill up the museum with. I wished that instead of just having a lot of random items that are designed, that instead they would have more background information about the different products you see. An example is there is a photo of the Sidney opera house and the name of the architect, but they didn't even bother to write that he's a Dane and that's why they have it there. Why not have a 3D model of the Opera house and provide some background info to the competition that offered other designs before they picked the Danish design? And provide some history and year at least

  • Scandal to call it design museum !!! This museum is more a museum than a design house which should represent the great danish artists. The modern part is crammed into small rooms, whereas the old part is occupying the greatest space and totally uninteresting parts, like the japonese inspiration, totally overdone and which should be eliminated to leave space to danish design. Further the museum does not present any coherent overall plan, without transitions from one room to the other. The porcelain exhibition is totally old fashion and without any explanation. Like many other rooms by the way. The hole museum needs a complete overhaul to reflect the great danish design.

  • All things design...provides a snapshot of Danish design history from day to day kitchen utensils to furniture. It captures the evolution of neat Scandinavian designs as we know today. Do try the cakes from the restaurant while you are there...they are delicious!
