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.

I found this museum to be very well put together and interesting, its history ranges from ancient times to modern times and contain lots of authentic Viking material which I found very interesting. There is no entry fee and centrally located, but beware it is closed on Mondays! (which we found out the hard way).

We visited this museum last spring just because it was there and we thought it might be" sort of" interesting. It was FABULOUS and we only wished that we had given ourselves more time. It contains EVERYTHING about Denmark from the Vikings to the modern day Dane. The experience begins in a large atrium, full of light, and continues with the exhibits on several floors around the perimeter. Stunnning! Don't miss it and ,again, give yourselves plenty of time. . There is something to be had here for the whole family!

Myself and my husband went here one morning while in Copenhagen. There is a lot to see here, and it was so interesting. We were there for hours but time flew while we were there. All of the areas were as interesting as the next, we were going to go to the Viking exhibition but we didn't have time because we were going somewhere else.
As we had such a lovely time at this museum it sparked me to go to the museums in my own city.
If you are looking for a morning of culture while in Copenhagen give the museum a visit.

Unfortunately only one floor of the museum was open which was a shame as it looked like there was some great exhibits
