It's on all the maps, we shlepped all over the place looking for it and finally discovered that it's closed in old location and will reopen in another location 2018.

Very impressed by this centre. Includes all the things that you associate with Danish design, such as chairs and home products. Also has special exhibitions, such as the Japanese Exhibition and Ceramics exhibition. They change all the time. Had good gift shop with more quality things to buy. Also pleasant café.

This is a must see if you are into the history of Danish Design. It's next to City Hall and Tivoli so you can easily do a combo.

It used to be a tourist attraction, but now it's just a business center that's not open to the public. They have a nice clean bathroom though.

When one days "danish design" expectations are high. The building is very nice, the collection also good. What doesn't work is the flow and the themes. You walk a little aimlessly through rooms that have a vague theme that is not impactful or clear sometimes. And, the most surprising: it doesn't focus at all on danish design but design in... More

If you do not like to waste your time and money, go somewere else.. The staff is rude, they should learn something about how to treat their clients. The museum is so small that you will finish the visit in less than 30 mins

The size and range of the collection is enough to enjoy and not be overwhelmed. The setting/ambiance of the location/site provides a striking contrast to the pieces presented. The café is inviting and the staff are quite friendly. The prices were reasonable, making it inviting to (do) sit and linger after viewing the exhibit.

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.
