The Theatre Museum is a part of the Court Theatre and is 250 years old- making it one of the oldest theatres in Copenhagen. The theatre is famous for hosting H.C Andersen and the Countess Danner among other notable personalities and artists. Walk into the main hall to see the classic architecture and gorgeous balconies where once only Kings and Queens would be allowed to have a seat. The maroon interiors of the theatre ooze royalty and with the gold embellishments, the place send you shooting into the glamorous past.
The theatre has a secret café where you can sip on a hot cup of coffee while taking in the skyline of Copenhagen. The small in-house museum is perfect to complete the visit. When in Copenhagen, do catch a trending show here. If you are not in a mood to see a show, visit the place to take a walk around and stand on the stage while dressed in the costumes provided by the theatre!

Very old, historical theatre in the centre of Copenhagen. Ideally located and beautiful building
Not a lot to see but enjoyed what there was, especially the opportunity to stand in the royal box.
I only had fifteen minutes to go through this museum but I would love to go back there oneday to go through everything in fine detail and view all of the wonderful and interesting things that I missed. The things I did manage to see in those fifteen minutes were really quite lovely... the place had a nice atmosphere.
Charming little museum that is definitely worth a half hour or so if you're at all interested in theater!
Very nice and little theatre, I was here for a guitar concert and I was really pleased by the good acoustics. There are lots of photos and paintings on the walls, and old costumes on display as well. A really nice place to visit.
