The Danish design is world-known. We like very much the desing museums, but this small center was disapponting. Nearly nothing to see, they were just reorganising the place.

We spent a fascinating couple of hours in this museum exploring the history and content of Danish Design in all its forms - well worth exploring if you are interested in design and craftwork.

My wife and I have always loved early Danish Design and took the time to visit the Design Centre. We were floored by some of the early pieces in their collection, but wish there was more. Some of the centre was closed for a show installation so the staff discounted the admission ticket. If you like 1920s/1930s design, this is... More

Danish design has had a storied history, and this rich museum, around the corner from Nyhavn, presents it well. Go when you're rested. The historical exhibits rank in quality with those of the National Museum.

I was expecting a little bit more from Danish Design Center. However, the exhibition of Danish design from 1945 until 2010 gives general overview of Danish design. The temporary exhibition was presentation of the winners of Danish Design Award 2012, which was interesting. However, if you want to see more from Scandinavian design go to the department store Illums Bolighus.

I had high expectations as Danish designers are well known around the world. And the centre had a quite interesting exhibition based on this year's design competition. It also had a nice history section with famous designs over the last 50 years or so. But that was it. The top floor was being renovated and the kids game area used... More

The temporary exhibition wasn't too smashing (although I've seen some interesting innovation ideas), but the permanent one is quite good, if you're into design. Also, there are gems to look out for in the museum shop.

See things around what you may even never think of. Very cool stuff and out of the box ideas. Can you think of an intelligent auto temperature controlled pillow and quilt... how sports t-shirt for FIFA were made from thrashed plastic bottles... go ahead checkout the stuff for yourself.
