Denmark has a very interesting history of women's movements trough time , and this museum explains it very simply. Most of it is in English and Danish but not the temporary exhibitions , you can ask for a book in reception for the explanation in English. The first salon is an exposition of children and how they are defined by... More

I had a delicious lunch with a freind in the museum cafe, and then we went round the museum, wanting particularly to see the exhibition of wedding dresses. The meal was very good and the exhibition excellent.

This museum is interesting and does have some really interesting history of the women's movement, but there were some really scary bits. It's not deliberate by I found the exhibitions of bagged children's clothes, the dystopic children's bedroom, the incidental taxidermy and the wax works/mannequins a bit spooky. Although interesting it definitely isn't a must-see.

It is a very interesting museum, it has brought me into close contact with the danish history and culture. All the information is well explained, both in danish and in english, and there are schemes very useful to see the evolution of the society with respect to women. It didn't take me long to visit all the museum, for me... More

Intresting Historic look back in time. Focusing famous/strong women. Then and now in Denmark. Upper floors showing different work from Danish art women 😃 Cozy café serving small dishes and coffee table surprices, using elderly antique porselin :-) -charming ☺️

Came early on a Sunday morning on my own. Paid £3.50 to get in. Place looked and sounded empty. First room was empty minus a bookcase and a projector. Second room was empty. Next floor was plain scary. Red and green lit rooms with bags of clothes hanging from the ceiling like bodies. A room with a cot on the... More

This museum is unique, and it's unlikely that you've seen one quite like it. However, to be frank, I'm not sure exactly what it is a museum of. Nevertheless, it's fun. It's small, and maybe a little overpriced, but I really enjoyed the art and the architecture of the building itself.
