If you love Danish design...chairs, furniture and cutlery then you'll really like the design museum. If you are unsure about seeing lots of chairs of varying designs then don't. The restaurant at the end deliver delicious food. The layout of the museum is simple and really well lit. Every Danish chair you love is displayed, some you can even try.... More

This is the primo museum to see and experience the Danish design in its full flavor. There were doing some roof renovations but it didn't take away from what was displayed here. Room after room of the innovative design that made Danes the leader in the field for so many years. Your need to go there when the museum is... More

I loved the design, they have some beautiful pieces and you can really get a feel for Danish/Scandinavian design and how it developed over the years. All explanatory texts are printed on the walls in English as well as Danish so the context wasn't lost on me like in some foreign museums. Worth the visit!

The best of Danish design, well laid out. Don't miss the glass canisters with the different kind of wood shavings to sniff in the section on furniture design. Colourful and interesting gift shop too.

The museum is still under renovation so not really worth the entrance fee. However the 20th century exhibit to the right of the entry was interesting and thought provoking. The museum itself is well laid out and informative. Gift shop nice but, as in all of Denmark, quite pricey. As other comments, a visit to Ilum department store is just... More

I went to the Design museum upon the recommendation of a Dane and am glad I went! The museum showcases a variety of works and exhibitions that are interesting to both people studying design/architecture and people who are not (like myself). From chairs, cupboards, porcelain, lighting, etc there are many pieces that make you pause and study how they were... More

I wasn’t expecting much of the museum, but I had a very positive surprise. The museum presents in a very organized and coherent way the development of design through history. I would definitely recommend it for those interested in design, arquitecture and arts. An other important thing is that students that present a student-id dont have to pay :)

There is nothing to watch her! It is waste of your money and not recommended at all! Save your effort and visit other interesting places. This place is terrible.

Well presnted thoughts about purpose and idea of the design. In the begin of museum you are even forced to think about the meaning of design by encountering three different presentations of same design. The part going back to history of design like art noveau is nice yet presented in backroom. Pitty ! Rooms are unfortunately because of restoration very... More

A wonderful museum to visit for an overview of Scandinavian design through the years. We did not dine in the cafe but it looked very nice. The gift shop had a nice selection as well.
