Had exhibitions on japanese culture, clothing from Denmark and the danish chair - including famous designers like Arne Jacobsen. Big part of Danish culture is design so worth seeing, but not really interactive or entralling in anyway unless you *LOVE* chairs, so not great for children or people not interested in art.

Well curated exhibitions of both the classics and current trends in the renowned Danish design. A must-see for design interested visitors to Copenhagen.

Very interesting for those , like us, who like danish design. You can see a collection of famous design chairs. For those who are not very interested in danish design, it could be a little bit boring...

There just wasn't very much to see! The exhibits it did have were interesting to a point although I felt more explanation was required in places. There were some interesting outfits displayed and a large range of chairs... and that was pretty much it. I was expecting much, much more.

If you love design you'll love this museum. The exhibition itself is constructed with design excellence in mind. The gift shop is a treat and the cafe a lovely place to take a rest. This was a highlight of our weekend.

We visited this last year so this is a belated review. We had no idea it existed and stumbled on it walking back to our hotel. It was a real surprise with a great array of classical and modern design pieces that were just so Scandinavian ( or at least as perceived by non Scandinavians)

Danish design is famous, and furniture is one of the categories where the Danes excel. But I think this museum is too focused on that side of it. Several Danish design icons are missing; especially contemporary design. One example is Bang & Olufsen, world famous for its audio products design. Not represented at all.

Really interesting history of danish design and pretty cool stuff to look at. Funny recognising designs you have purchased over the years in your home country. Friendly staff and a nice place to have coffee and cake. Good stop on the way back from the mermaid.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

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.
