National Museum Of Denmark, Copenhagen Reviews - Write a Review

  • Well I loved it, not sure if they change or how often their exhibition but I fell in love with the current one. As they advertising 20'000 years of history in front of your eyes from the very beginning through all ages - obviously even a viking one - NOT only about/from Denmark but I saw swords from Hungary which is where I'm from. My favourite part was the viking warship - Yes a whole warship! - , it is unbelievable and the different weapons from different ages, not to mention those gold jeweleries. If you love vikings, gold and silver, or just curious about how we evolved and from where, well I can truly recommend it.

  • Very well designed muesum with historical artifacts from all over the world from a variety of time periods. Definitely worth spending at least a few hours there. Start at the top floor and work your way down. They let you take photos at will which is a huge plus for me

  • A surprisingly excellent museum! Free to get in, with an excellent gift shop (really, really good). I could have spent a fortune in the gift shop if I hadn't had to fit it all into suitcases for a flight back to London. Heck, I wanted to buy the bone hair pins even though I obviously don't have any hair that I could use them in. A t-shirt that says "authentic viking" in Viking runes? Awesome. Anyway, the actual museum. I only looked around the Viking stuff to be honest. It was hot, my feet were sore and I didn't feel like going upstairs to the other more modern exhibits. But I saw some really good stuff - we went through the ancient history part exhibits before getting there and they had some interesting fossil pieces too. Lots of flint axes which I recognised instantly. Then the Viking stuff. So much cool stuff. More viking runestones that you would ever expect to see in one place, and I like that they translated them all. The exhibits were all really well laid out in this museum. A Viking boat, a massive gold cup which was made as a tribute to the Vikings. So. Much. Good. Stuff. Could have spent a couple of days in here if it wasn't for the temperature. It wasn't all that hot, but it was warm enough to keep us moving on.

  • Great museum, I really enjoyed their ancient human exhibition. It is laid out so you can see the evolution of society, blew my mind! One of the best museum gift shops too

  • The National museum of Denmark is my favorite museum!!! Although there's no audio guide, the English explanation is more than enough (not only about the exhibition itself but the historical and anthropological meaning behind it) -- and after 2 hours I only managed to glance 23 rooms out of 200+. I was really upset but then I found that they sell separate books regarding each group of rooms. For example, I bought the Stories of Denmark 1660-2000, which talks about Danish modern history. It resonates what my anthropology professor has taught me and makes me want to be a museum-studies major (but it's too late 😭) Highly recommend!!!
