If you need to pass a few hours on a rainy day this Museum is worthwhile. There is a skeleton of a dinasaur found few years ago (Misty), skeleton of sperm whale found in 2014 and even specimens sent by Darvin himself. Most exhibits has detailed English description.

The new Dinosaur Misty and the new whale skeleton is really interesting. There is also a great room for kids to explore and touch the stuffed animals. But the whole exhibition suffers from poor acoustics - it's very hard to be heard and when you bring kids you really want to explain to them along the way. But that was... More

There is plenty to see in this museum. It maybe not as big as some other natural history museums out there, but it was worth seeing Misty the diplodocus, the size of a whale heart and how big the now extinct giant sloth was. There is a good educational room where things can be touched, there is colouring in and... More

A trip to the museum shows the only dinosaur skeleton in Denmark. Plenty polar/skandinavian animals shown in their natural sorrundings. A 6-7 y.o child will love this exibishion, many things are to be touched. :-) a safe must see for smaller kids. Bring your own picnic.

If you are visiting Copenhagen or are a local this small museum is a great place to visit for 2-3 hours. Lots of interesting interactive presentations and knowledgable wall cards. Also has a variety of different themes throughout the year. If you want to educate your kids, then take a visit here.

Based on recent experience, the museum now seems a little worn, but in general, it has been one of the leading zoological museums with many activities, special exhibitions and informal atmosphere.

We are spending a month in Copenhagen while my husband works at the University. I would never have known about this museum if it hadn't been right beside where he's working - it wasn't in the Copenhagen Top Ten book although, in my opinion, it's much better than many of the attractions they list. This is a natural history museum.... More
