Once you enter the doors you instantly forget that it is situated in a somewhat boring place and building in Helsingør (45 km north of Copenhagen). The buildings are packed with technical and historical gadgets in all sizes - airplanes, fire engines, bycicles, telephones, cars, motorbikes, helicopters etc. etc. If you are a little boy - or have a little boy inside you - you will love running around for a few hours at least.

Bring your own food and have it on the grass outside (close to an old steam engine) - or go to Helsingør for it. The cafeteria is not worth a visit, but the museum is definitely!

I had a spare couple of hours whilst in Denmark last weekend so a quick search of things to do flagged up the Tekniske Museet. No problems getting to it (train direct to Helsingoer from Copenhagen and then taxi from the station) although as others have commented from the outside it is less than impressive maybe - perhaps a fibre glass gate guardian would make it stand out more?

Inside however is simply fantastic. Being a sunny day I guess most people would've been outside but it meant that I pretty much had the museum to myself which was fine.

The museum was very nicely laid out and although most of the information on the displays is in Danish only (some have a brief English overview) this didn't detract from the exhibits, many of which to me were new sights and "cops". Of particular interest were the immaculate Danish KZIII and KZIV and the Blohm and Voss 138 that had been raised from the seabed in 2000.

Aside from the planes (which were my main interest) there is an extensive collection of cars and vehicles, appliances and other inventions. There is also a small restaurant area and shop (though the latter seemed slightly sparsely stocked).

If like you have any interest in science/engineering/technology I simply cannot recommend this museum enough. A great way to spend a few hours.

We found this quite disappointing - the kids were certainly very excited to see all of the planes, care etc on entering the building, but this quickly melted when we discovered that there were very few of them that they could actually touch. A very old fashioned museum - certainly lots to see but it's of the'look but don't touch; with very boring explanations to the side.I understand that these are old, sometime fragile items where you may need to restrict direct access, but there is a real opportunity to improve children's ability to engage with these items from history, with the addition of short animated films / quizzes etc. One of the films that I spotted in the cycle exhibit was 43 minutes long- which visitor -let along child is really going to sit there for that long watching it?

Absolutely a must see if your are a tech freak, or just a big boy. Lots of funny stuff, from the period before the world went crazy. Love this playground.

The Technical Museum of Denmark is situated in Elsinore, 45 minutes by train from Copenhagen. The museum has collected a lot of the technical story of Denmark, - the story of television in Denmark, - the story of the Danish Flight Industry and a lot of other exiting things that was invented in Denmark. If you are interested in model trains, you will be amazed over the large model train area..

The museum is really nice for those who are interested in technology. You can find anything from kitchen equipment to airplanes there! Quite a collection! Lots of information too. Some activities for families with children. Entrance 80DKK for adults. It takes a couple of hours to see everything there. There is a cafe and some food too. Good impression on the whole. A little "face lift" would be needed as it seems to be untouched for many years. 😊

The artifacts of this museum are nice,but really need some more money to show them properly Most of the descriptions are in Danish only, which for a non DK people hard to read.

Older children will have fun on their own (I write this as we have been there so many times already) They will roam around for a few hours. A great experience for adults as well no doubt about that. There are some interactive activities and exciting to actually sit in an air plane cockpit.

Lunch and snacks can be had there, but not goume style, but nice and simple.

Find the "retro" stands, many parents will recognize their first cell phone and the home of their grandparents.

Absolutely recommend this place.
