I would definitely recommend the Design Museum. It was really interesting and we also got some cool photos. The gift shop and coffee shop were nice too.

This museum is not for everyone despite being a major Copenhagen attraction. Note that if you are under 26 you get free entry so make sure you take a form of ID. A good place if you are interested in Danish designs, in particular of fashion and chairs as well as how the Japanese have influenced Danish culture.

I really enjoyed this, fantastically laid out! Even though I'm not a huge art\design fan I would highly recommend this as the colours and cool objects were really different and interesting ! The room with the history of the 'Danish chair' is a must see! Overall fantastic for those who love interior design !

This was really good value and we enjoyed the somewhat quirky content. Made us realise just what an influence Danish design has had just about everywhere. A special exhibition of the development of the chair had a really novel way of displaying the items on three elevated rows. The food at the restaurant looked pretty good - at a price... More

Great for a free museum! I was expecting more from a danish design museum, but it was very interesting to see how Japanese art has influenced danish design and lifestyle - I hadn't seen this before but it makes so much sense! I was expecting more but it was well exposed, and the chairs and it's evolution was interesting. Especially... More

Went here and expected to see a lot about the history and development of the worldwide famous Danish design.. Well it was a bit disappointing at the start.. Since there was a big exhibitionabout Japanese design. In the final part of the museum it became interesting since it was about the development of Danish design. The museum shop is for... More

This was high up on our list of things to see in Copenhagen as Danish design is iconic. So many things to see from clothes to furniture to every day items.

WOW...where do you start? What a wonderful celebration of Danish design! The chair exhibition was interestingly staged. How incredible to see how many of the designs we now see, were actually originally, early 20th century..It was incredibly classy with exhibits set out to optimise their strengths. STYLEY museum shop!! A MUST for all visitors!

A fantastic modern design and craft museum. Especially if you like chairs, there's a lot, and I mean a lot of chairs. In addition there are free lockers for your outer layers and bags, a great café and a super shop.

Thank DrSarah62

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new 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 venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
