Unfortunatle, only the main floor remaind open to the public, where you can have a nice cup of coffe and get a glimpse over the design. 10 minutes will do.

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.

We loved this place! The exhibits were fascinating and well laid out. We are very interested in greenbuilding, so this was right up our ally. We also loved the gift shop. We had a coffee too and that was great. The bathrooms were very clean and nice as well.

A compact design centre with a lot of interesting designs which may be 30-40 years old, but still perceived as very modern The location across the street from Tivoli and Glyptoteket makes it convenient for a short stop

This is a fascinating place near the Tivoli devoted to Danish design. There were several separate exhibitions - one on new design materials (recycling plastic coke bottles to make chairs, for example) and one a walk through of the great Danish designs of the 20th century, including Arne Jacobsen's Egg chair, Bodum coffee makers and lego. It also has a... More

Temporary exhibitions - we had visited the center while the headline was "CHALLENGE INNOVATION - designing great ideas til Useful solutions". Exciting - and so is the center only minutes from downtown and right up to Tivoli
