  • Great place to get a very wide range of Denmark's history. From stone age to latest pop culture. Exhibitions are explained in Danish and English. Especially the 'secret' interactive events placed throughout the museum make it a special experience. 2-3 hours of you stroll through the entire place.

  • Was here with my company for offsite. We had a meeting room with good breakfast and cake in the afternoon. At 16 we had a guided tour of the museum and at 17 we had dinner in the restaurant. It is a nice place to go if you want to go somewhere different and experience a little cultural as well. Located close to the central station so easy to get to.

  • Very comprehensive museum, well directed with English on all the exhibits. See Denmark’s complete history with some key Danish heirlooms including the famed Golden Horns among other national treasures. This place is big and is housed in the old Prince’s Mansion (King Frederick V). Nice coffee shop inside and in the courtyard. Good gift shop with some unique items. Plan to spend a few hours here or more if you are a museum buff. Not to be missed.

  • I went here for free using the Copenhagen card and it was a great way to begin my day. I am as sure to hit the Danish history section along with the King’s curiosity collection which had a nice range of religious artifacts and iconography. The real hit is the viking and pre-Viking displays. This was top notch. I didn’t make it to the other sections as a quick but thorough pass the Danish section took a good 1.5 hours. Totally worth it.

  • Wow. The history of Denmark section is great but the ethnographic treasures are simply amazing. Could easily spend 2-3 hours here. Such great quality of exhibits. Has English text but no audio guide. Highly recommended visit!
