Owner description: The National Museum of Denmark is the largest culture-historical museum in Denmark. The museum is a dynamic cultural institution offering a great variety of exhibitions and activities. Our artefacts come from all over the world and from different time periods. We can take you on a journey, traveling thousands of years through time and experience everything from the Danish national treasure the Golden Horns and the 3000 year old Egtved Girl to African masks and Egyptian mummies. In the Children's Museum, you can see and try things that show how people ate, worked, played and dressed hundreds of years ago in different environments.

“Fab museum and free entry.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The national museum is in a beautiful old building. There is so much on display you would really need all day to see it all. Nice cafe inside so you can have a rest!

“Huge”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We came here one afternoon and although there were some interesting aspects I got bored quickly as there was so much here and also the english on the comments were the smallest font and sometimes quite hard to find especially when looking at small items

“Amazing collection”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

For those of you who find museums a bit overwhelming, this one is quite claustrophobic, lots of corridors and doors. When we visited it was full of kids on half term and very noisy. We went back early in the morning instead...much better. Nice shop with cheap stuff for kids.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We really loved this museum. Incredibly well done and lovely to see history from another vantage point. Excellent use and mix of English and Danish in exhibitions. Also, perfectly behaved Danish children visiting museum were also very impressive.
