Only had 1.5 hrs before closing so I quickly started on floor 1 and got a whirlwind tour from pre-Viking era thru present times. Great acknowledgement of colonial past and interesting exhibits

We saved this for a rainy day. It was really close to our hostel and a perfect way to spend the afternoon as it was raining a lot. Really interesting artifacts. Worth it

Great exhibits on Pre historic Danes, Bog people, Vikings & rune stones. Great museu for newbies to Denmark to get a sense of the country. We loved the almost modern art display of bronze ceremonil horns in the pre history section.

A nice change from other activities in Copenhagen. Set aside a day if you’re into history, half a day if you want a quick look. Take the guided tour, it’s free last about an hour and is very informative in a relaxed way.

You could spend all day here, learn a lot and have a decent lunch. Dont forget to trawl the shop afterwards.
