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

  • A must-see for history/art buff. It is an overwhelming museum by its sheer size and the number of shown artifacts. You can easily spend a day there. For a typical tourist, I would recommend following Rick Steves' guidebook. It is super detailed and covers the most interesting items from an American perspective. You should delve a bit more according to your own interest (maybe it is Christian art, maybe it is how the modern social democratic institutions were formed). They provide rooms for picnic, which is really nice. It can get crowded at times.

  • Spent a few hours here just walking round seeing all the exhibits. Extremely interesting and educational place. Staff of the museum are very helpful and friendly. There are free lockers for you to use if you have a backpack. You can take your backpack throughout the museum with you but they ask that you wear it on your front so it’s easier to leave it in a locker.

  • Amazing museum with Rich cultural history. I heard from a local that the art director is new (2017/2018). Plan to spend 4-5 hours here if you are a history buff. The history spans across the world including ancient artifacts from Japan, China, indigenous populations in America, and more. The section that has the history of Denmark and other Scandinavian regions is the most informative if you are looking for local history as you visit Denmark. Finally, when I visited there was an exhibition on ancient Egypt that was lovely. Pace yourself as you take in the vast information.

  • So much to see! You could spends days here and not get round it all in detail, we only had 2 hours so had to whizz round and only stop if something caught my eye. Such a mix from all over the globe. Children's museum on the ground floor was brilliant, very interactive. Would highly recommend from toddlers upwards!

  • Fantastic museum with so much on offer to see. Charting all the coursebook Danish history. Brilliant exhibition on show here. Need to allow plenty of time though if visiting. I only had 2 hours and managed less than half so would say half day is probably minimum. Some great interactive displays too on show.
