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.

The museum was great much like the British museum or other similar ones with descriptions in Danish and English. The gift shop however was by far the best I have been to in any museum with loads of cool replica stuff. I got myself a fine drinking horn and stand.

The museum is an amazing experience and we spent a number of hours wandering throughout the building. The trip through Danish history was fascinating with well displayed artifacts and information boards.

We did sneak a peak at the Childrens museum and had a play with the wooden swords. Its a great interactive area for children to have fun whilst learning.

We did stop at the coffee shop for a drink and it had probably the most reasonably priced hot/cold drinks we had seen throughout our entire stay in Copenhagen.

Would highly recommend a visit here :)

The museum is very well done, it manes to take you at once through Danish history. They have a special part for kids and it is and interactive exhibit. Very recommendable.

Great for ethnography, history and anthrophology lovers. Also the museum shop is very nice. The entrance is free of charge, but you have to spend at least 2-3 hours visit all the museum.

We went to visit the National Museum for one hour before we had to leave for the airport. It is such a shame that we didn't have much time as the museum is huge and very interesting! Plus, it is FREE!!!
