Not much to see and very outdated. The presentation is very old fashioned. Mostly pictures or videos. It takes 20 minutes to see everything. Avoid.

Boring, unimaginative and outdated. Copenhagen is a fantastic city - don't waste your time in this museum! Entirely overpriced.

To be honest, I quite enjoyed the museum. I liked the feel to it (although outdated), children would like it. However, most of the interactive games are not working, the world records are poorly presented on the wall and the replicas to illustrate them are even worse (not accurate at all). On the top of that, you have the option... More

Museum is very small. Boring... All exposure is old and dirty. I will not recommend this place. Save your money! What I didn't expect was that it seemed like some of the "records" were outdated along with the rest of the museum architecture. Small and kind of a waste of time if you ask me for the price. Yes it's... More

Awful but I can't remember when I have laughed like that last time. For the kids the museum was OK but can't recommend for anyone.

Too little pictures showing the actual records, overall outdated design, info shown is not accurate (anymore), not all info is shown in English/German, some of the interactive parts don't work, we details are shown in feet and not metres, some info is given in DM (old German currency before the Euro), some parts are under construction,.... I could go on... More

This was the least impressive museum i've ever visited and can't recommend it to anyone. It was small and dusty. The text on the wall tells about the world's largest kangaroo which is 3 meters tall. The dusty old kangaroo next to the text is one meter tall. Same goes to almost everything in the museum.

the museum is a little over priced for how small it is, but it is denmark where things are usually quite expensive. Its great for a rainy day or a time filler, taking around a couple of hours to walk around and be in awe at the weird and wonderful things around the world. There are also some great photo... More

This museum is a bit outdated and tired but still had a quirky charm about it. We had a discount with the Copenhagen Card so not too expensive for two, and the man on reception was very helpful. All in all a diverting hour for me and my son. The exit is bizarre, you come out onto a stairway serving... More

I expected the museum to be a little bit bigger. There were a few things that attracted my attention especially the competition with the machine to practice reflex, you have to push buttons with flashing lights as quickly as you can. The record-holder is Jenson Button with 67 hits I suppose. You can stop and enter the museum if you... More

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.
