How the exhibition is arranged seemed pretty random to me, jumping from china, painting to textile and furniture without a coherent theme. The garden was my favourite part of the museum. Would not recommend to friends. Glad I didn't have to pay the entrance fee (under 26 go free).

We visited it on a sunny Sunday in August. At 2 pm there was an english guided tour which lasts for half an hour. The guide introduced us to the history of the museum, from originally a hospital to a collection of imported good designs to inspire danish designers, until now a collection of elegant danish furniture designs to inspire...

A section of Danish design as well as various exhibitions set in the beautiful Old Frederiks Hospital from 1750 makes it a joy to visit.

Very nice free museum, bigger than I'd thought. Nice and varied collection from design chairs to lamps and fashion. Oh and good food for a reasonable price

There is a very beautiful garden courtyard and sometimes in summer there are stage performances occurring outdoors. The museum itself is in an old house and you walk through the rooms with varying exhibitions. There is supposed to be an overview of the development of Danish design but it is rather haphazard. It's still worth visiting but don't go expecting... More

Great overview of history of Danish design, starting with the omnipresent influence of Japan on modern design. Small furniture and housewares collection features all the classics. Additional highlight is the textile exhibit which progresses from embroidery of the Royal Court progressing through modern day. Current special exhibit on printmaking was quite interesting. Museum is modest in size, easily done in... More

Don't miss the chance to immerse yourself in what is so important to the Danes, their fantastic sense of domestic design. Super galleries, bright, interesting and informative and a lovely relaxed outside space which is so unexpectedly rural in feel. Spend a leisurely afternoon here and soak up some 20th 21st century culture.

You cannot be in the design capital of the world and not visit this museum. It is the ultimate monument to the design architects of this city / country who have put Danish design on the world map. But of course it is not every one's cup of tea. So be it! Good for the rest of us to enjoy... More

This museum was a delight! The contemporary exhibition was interesting to see so much variation of products currently being designed by up-and-coming Danes. The classics (especially the furniture) were inspiring and fun to see how things evolved and played off one another.

With two sons studying product design, we had to visit this place. Starting with the 19th C influence from Japan, this modest size museum just gets better and better as you progress. So many features on display where the phrases "that is just brilliant", "wow" and "what a simple and great idea" just kept on coming out! Some areas of... More
