The zoologisk museum kept children in our company composed of many different ages, all equally happy. There is plenty to see, read, touch that no child can be bored. The iceberg and stalagmites were my personal favorites. The children loved cuddling with the embalmed bear :-/

We visited the Zoologisk museum on a cold autumn day in Copenhagen with two small children aged 3 and 4. We started the visit by visiting the basement where large whale skeletons where exhibited in very primitive conditions. A man was explaining how they got them, from where they were and in general about the lifes of the whales. The... More

Two floors of fine exhibits. On the upper floor are some nice dioramas incorporating mammals, birds, and invertebrates from habitats from "pole to pole," a huge room with skeletons of two large whales (one toothed, one baleen,) ice age and modern mammals, a replica of Darwin's study, and a wall of the diversity of life. The "feathered dinosaurs" reflect knowledge... More

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Noerrebro
Located just north of The Lakes, this neighbourhood is a melting pot of small quirky clothing stores, dozens of pizzerias and eateries of all types, a street almost entirely devoted to antiques, several microbreweries and even a couple of Michelin starred restaurants. Here you’ll also find Assistens Cemetery which is an ecclectic mix of tombstones as well as a recreational park and where you will find the tombstones of famous Danes, such as writer Hans Christian Anderson and physicist Niels Bohr. Inner Noerrebro is also home to one af the most popular theatres in Copenhagen, called Noerrebro Theatre. It shows both popular musicals and plays, as well as productions of a more experimental nature.
