The National Museum - Review

Of all the museums in Denmark, this is the only one solely dedicated to preserving and exhibiting this countrys cultural heritage. 14000 years of Danish history is covered here, sensitively arrange to create a smooth flowing story. The exhibits cover a range of  topics including archeology, ethnography and natural science. There’s no wa to cover it all in a brief visit. Prepare to spend at least a full day in here. It’s actually the place we ought to visit first in Denmark. Everything else you see in the city afterwards makes so much more sense.

The National Museum, Copenhagen Reviews

  • 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.

  • This museum has an amazing collection of all eras of Danish history, from prehistoric and vikings up modern times. Take enough time for this museum as the collection is extensive and educational. Almost everything is labeled in English and Danish. On the fist floor is a cafe. On the ground floor is a well stocked gift shop.

  • 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!

  • Highly comprehensive museum that walks you the history of Denmark. It’s well organized and efficient with each room being numbered so you go from one to another. There is a lot to see here so you could easily spend half a day or more here depending on the pace in which you go through it. It rains a lot in Denmark, so this is a great way to spend a rainy day.

  • Interesting, vast collection but it is a bit repetitive after a while (once you've seen 1000 arrow heads, you've seen them all). Also, for some reason the climate control in the building keeps much of the building very warm even if it is cool outside. The Toy exhibit is tiny.
