Tojhus Museum - Review
The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum was founded in 1928 and is accommodated in the Tøjhuset building that dates back to the early 17th century! The building was one of the structures built by Christain IV and was used as an arsenal well up until the 19th century.
Today, the museum showcases over 10,000 weapons dating from the 16th century till present day and includes swords, armours, guns, pistols, machine guns and 300 cannons. But what truly makes the place shine is its ambience that recreates life in a Danish war camp in Afghanistan and how the place showcases war strategies and proceedings implemented over the last 500 years!
If war history is something that interests you, a visit here will leave your mind more curious than before. Another highlight is coming face-to-face with some of the oldest weapons in the world!

Tojhus Museum, Copenhagen Reviews
Very nice museum that has plenty of great narratives that do more than just show off the equipment. It does a good job of highlighting not only the weaponry but both some of the politics and human effect of war. The collection is very ed extensive and the Afghanistan exhibit was particularly cool.
Don't miss this outstanding museum. Its got something for everyone interested in history. Don't miss the compelling Afghan war exhibit.
Amazing museum showcasing Denmark's military history. Well worth the price.
Reasonable price, interesting and interactive museum. The sad thing was, that there weren’t any signs in english.
Wow! Huge museum with a LOT to see. Every Danish war. Great for a cold or rainy afternoon.
