What an unusual museum. Teh centrepiece is the maritime diesel that was used for electricity generation from the twenties until after the turn of the millennium. In addition one can see displays of the history of the diesel engine in general and especially of those of Burmeister & Wain, as well as the history of this company. The most interesting aspect is the starting of the huge diesel engine every other Sunday morning at 11 AM.

My partner likes engines having been a ships engineer so this was his dream visit. We were not disappointed while waiting to enter a gentleman approach us he was on his way to work in the museum. This man as most of the staff there are volunteers and very knowledgeable people, my partner had a number of conversations related to engines of course with this gentleman. There were a number of engines to see over a number of floors. On a rear wall there was a time line with badges/signs that identified events over the years which I found very interesting. Items for sale such as books, t-shirts and mugs are available in the entrance way and the museum is free to go in. Very well worth a visit even for those who are not engineers and I am sure children will also be interested in the engine especially on the days they have them running.

This museum hosts a gigantic antique diesel engine used for electricity generation during peak demand hours. We were lucky to see the big engine running as it was specially turned on for the students that were on the trip in the museum. It was cool to see the engine on the move but it was not as impressive as I imagined, still fun though. Apart from the engines the museum has interesting exhibition dedicated to the diesel engines and how it changed transport and other things. Engines models were fun because they were interactive – it's just so much better to read about them while watching them running. The place deserves so much more love. It's hardly ever shows up in any tour guides. It's slightly outside of the main Copenhagen's tourist site but reachable by train and some walking. The fact that the engines are being turned only around noon doesn't help either as it totally breaks your day plan if you are dead-set to see the engines on the run. Museum is free of charge and guides are really happy to host you. It's a place mostly for guys fascinated by technology, probably not the trip for people who look for more typical castle, lakes, parks kind of trip. I think kids could like it as well. For some people this place is a must. For most however this place fits into “if we have some time left” category. Certainly it is unique. Tips: 1. Location: Go to Orsted power plant and then follow the arrows. The house is rather hidden but arrows do help a lot. 2. Check the engines running time The big engine is called “H. C. Ørsteds-engine (B&W no. 2000)“. If you are short on time I don't think it's worth ruining the rest of your day just to see the engine on the run but extra points if you do.

It's difficult to get there, but worth the hassle. You will be amazed by the largest diesel engine running gloriously. The exhibits were entertaining and educational too. You can learn a lot about the history of diesel engines and locomotives in general. However, don't wear nice clothes when you go there. The smell and atmosphere is what you'd expect from "dieselhhosue"
