The size and range of the collection is enough to enjoy and not be overwhelmed. The setting/ambiance of the location/site provides a striking contrast to the pieces presented. The café is inviting and the staff are quite friendly. The prices were reasonable, making it inviting to (do) sit and linger after viewing the exhibit.

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

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood 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.
