THe display of Danish pre-history is outstanding as was the Vikings exhibition. The rest was a bit disappointing but still worth a 2-3 hour visit. Free lockers that work! British Museum could learn a few things from them

If you're like me and could live in a museum, this is one you might want to consider visiting. The Viking artifacts from DK are fascinating and impressive. Danish history is through all time periods.

You can easily spend 2-3 hours roaming through here. They have displays about the stone ages, toys from the 20th century, culture in the 1980's, etc... We really enjoyed the variety and all the information that came with each section.

To tourists who know pretty much nothing about Denmark history. This is the point to start. It takes us through the history of Denmark through the exhibits. There are interactive exhibits makes the museum attractive and fun.

Easy to find, polite staff. Good displays too. A great display on hunter gatherers there and all the displays had an English description too, which helped massively.

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
