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.

Danish Museum Of Art And Design, Copenhagen Reviews - Write a Review
Fascinating Museum displaying Danish design from the past to the present. Lots of information posted in English. The museum itself is (not surprisingly) very well designed with some very clever displays. My particular favourite was the section showing various chair designs. Finally there is a section showing Japanese art, and it's influence on Danish design. Highly recommended. If you have a Copenhagen Card, admission is free.
Excellent Japanese decorative arts section showing fascinating effect on Danish design opens a very nice museum. Danish chair section stood out even more than expected, and liked the Nouveau displays, but the jump right to mid-century was puzzling: I'm only so familiar and would have liked to have seen the Deco aspect, but maybe it isn't very large. Worth the trip and price if in town or a trip out of the way if you have a thing for Danish chair history and inspiration.
"Danish design" has a big name in the world. This museum is providing a great overview through the times and different kind of objects. From haute couture to wooden chairs, the presentation with additional posters or videos is helping, to get into it. You will see and recognize the most famous brands, you connect with Danish design :) A break at the cafe with cakes and cookies helps to recover and get through all the exhibition in around 3h(?). Recommended!
Given how famous Danish design is, we headed here on a rainy day and enjoyed it. We saw the general permanent exhibition, the chairs exhibition, and a bit of the historical stuff by the chairs. Could have done with a bit more explanation throughout (or an audio guide?) - the items that had descriptions of why they had been included were much more interesting. Cafe was nice but the food options were a bit limited (a couple of open sandwiches and soup was pretty much it for lunch).
Incredible place! Get inspired by their vast selection of design from different places in time. Graphical design, furniture, architecture and more. The place itself is beautiful on its own.
