The attraction being reviewed here is both a closed Design Center and the Danish Design Museum. To clear things up, the Danish Design Museum is open at Bredgade 68 near the Marble Church and Amelienborg Palace. I was there today. One wing is given over to the work of Hans Wenger and his chair designs. There are even chairs you... More

Despite my brand new guidebook's review, the design centre is closed bar the coffee shop, and has been for over a year. Don't waste your time;it's a coffee shop.

The "chair" exhibition was fascinating and the fact you could sit in some as you were moving through the exhibit meant it was even more interesting. At present the roof is being repaired so some of the exhibits are closed.

This was close to our hotel and we were surprised how much larger inside it was than it appears from the outside. Yes, there are lots of chair and furniture designs and yet many more things that just tickle your eyeballs. There's a great cafeteria and also a wonderful gift shop.

The Design Center closed at the beginning of 2013, according to the café staff currently at the former Design Center location.

The building has a really stylish exterior but it is in fact a cafe with offices, not a design museum.

I went their expecting to see displays of famous Danish designers' works and to learn more about the history of Danish design, but instead found nothing but a cafe and sitting area in the 1st floor (although they seemed to be in the midst of setting up some kind a display), and some offices you could look into in the...

There was nothing going on here at all so we decided to have a coffee. Approached the counter & a young guy gave us a menu & told us to sit down as he would come to the table. He then clearly forgot we were there, difficult as there were only a couple of other customers. After some time he... More

This is now offices, a coffee shop and exhibition space. Instead I recommend a visit to the Danish Design Museum. Although some galleries were closed for repairs on our visit it was still worth going to see originals of the iconic chairs designed by Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner and their contemporaries. Definitely give the Design Centre a miss in favour... More
