“Only go if......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

If you love Danish design...chairs, furniture and cutlery then you'll really like the design museum. If you are unsure about seeing lots of chairs of varying designs then don't. The restaurant at the end deliver delicious food. The layout of the museum is simple and really well lit. Every Danish chair you love is displayed, some you can even try. The only down side is a lack of information about each item. a detailed pamphlet would be a good alternative. The exhibition I should say as it does change, Was Hans J Wenger.

“Take your time here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

This is the primo museum to see and experience the Danish design in its full flavor. There were doing some roof renovations but it didn't take away from what was displayed here. Room after room of the innovative design that made Danes the leader in the field for so many years. Your need to go there when the museum is open late which Wednesday and enjoy a meal at the Klint Designmuseets Cafe. It was by accident we found it as all good travel experiences are. We had a wonderful meal at a very reasonable price. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

“Great to get a feel for Danish Design”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

I loved the design, they have some beautiful pieces and you can really get a feel for Danish/Scandinavian design and how it developed over the years. All explanatory texts are printed on the walls in English as well as Danish so the context wasn't lost on me like in some foreign museums. Worth the visit!

“Great place for an afternoon of bad weather”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

The best of Danish design, well laid out. Don't miss the glass canisters with the different kind of wood shavings to sniff in the section on furniture design. Colourful and interesting gift shop too.

“Only go if you like design”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

The museum is still under renovation so not really worth the entrance fee. However the 20th century exhibit to the right of the entry was interesting and thought provoking.
The museum itself is well laid out and informative. Gift shop nice but, as in all of Denmark, quite pricey. As other comments, a visit to Ilum department store is just as interesting to see new designs.
Would only visit if all exhibits available to view.
