Owner description: The National Museum of Denmark is the largest culture-historical museum in Denmark. The museum is a dynamic cultural institution offering a great variety of exhibitions and activities. Our artefacts come from all over the world and from different time periods. We can take you on a journey, traveling thousands of years through time and experience everything from the Danish national treasure the Golden Horns and the 3000 year old Egtved Girl to African masks and Egyptian mummies. In the Children's Museum, you can see and try things that show how people ate, worked, played and dressed hundreds of years ago in different environments.

This was my second visit to this museum and it is just a wonderful museum. It has an excellent prehistory exhibit and then varying temporary exhibits. The prehistory exhibit is such a great introduction to Danish prehistory and full of great displays of bog people/prehistoric graves, and archaeological finds throughout history. One of my favorite displays is old musical instruments (like curved trumpets) hanging in a display case. It is a very interesting museum.

The National Museum of Denmark throughly tells the story of Denmark. Through pre-history, through the viking ages, to contemporary times. If you want to learn about the Danish story, and if you're in Copenhagen at all, this is the place to go. Especially since its free.

The best part of this museum was the Prehistoric Denmark section which really has material you really can't see anywhere in the world - great amber collections, and other artefacts, with good explanations. The more recent collections are good, but less of a standout. I could have used more time!

Exhibit on the earliest inhabitants of Denmark was excellent for adults and kids. Nice museum shop is expensive

The exposition about the Denmark history is very nicely organized and educative. Really enjoyed. There is also a children museum that the small ones are going to love. The best of all is that everything is free!
