This museum has the best exhibition on Søren Kierkegaard's life anywhere in the world. A must-see for any philosophy and existentialism enthusiast.

This is not the typical museum. The exhibits and displays are innovative. At first, I was put off because it was rather nontraditional. But once I started moving through the museum, I was impressed with the way things were presented. Very interesting and informative.

Excellent Lego town...More

It's a lot of present day. The best immigrant museum I have seen. The pictures and stories were very touching and so real for an immigrant like me.

This small museum is a little off the beaten track (obviously, as this is it's first review) but it's worth a visit, especially on a rainy day. I found both the "Becoming a Copenhagener" exhibition and "The Past Beneath Us" thoughtful and thought provoking. The...More
