This museum is in a lovely building and is laid out well. Interesting to learn that the iconic Danish furniture we all recognise is influenced by Japanese art. Seems obvious once it's been pointed out. The first galleries are of Japanese objets d'art with some beautiful weaving. Other galleries included furniture, of course, clothing and toys. The shop is very... More

I went to this place as it was free entry with the Copenhagen card. It was ok...some parts of the exhibition were interesting but others were slightly boring. I guess it depends what you're in to. If you're I. That part of the city it's worth a look whilst you're there.

You will find a lot of well known items and how they were developed. Of course there is many things that never came out on the market and you will admire some of these ideas .

As a student I did get free entry. Even then it felt like a wasted few hours. The exhibitions were not done to a high standard and there was not a huge amount to see. Certainly not at the same level as some of the other museums in Copenhagen.

This museum gives you a great introduction into the history of Danish design up through the modern design movement of the twentieth century. The exhibits cover furniture, clothing and architecture. Since we have all been affected by Danish Modern design, it is interesting to see its development. The musuem is a good size so that you can spend some time... More

The museum has an enthralling collection of arts and crafts of all sorts - Japanese artefacts that had a stylistic influence on Danish design, clothes, a collection of chairs that tells the story of 20th century Danish furniture - you name it. And all exhibited in a cavernous historic former hospital. The collection is disseminated in a fun and irreverent... More

If you like Danish modern design, this is the place. Lots of historic and current products and art. Extensive displays of bobbin lace. New exhibit of chairs - which is a lot more interesting than it sounds!

If you enjoy great design then you've got to visit this museum. Not only will yiu see some iconic classic designs, but you'll walk round a beautiful building which was once a hospital and which has been converted to a peaceful and serene museum. Don't forget to stop off in the cafe which offers better than average museum food.

Thank mkacary

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
