“Boring and poorly curated”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We were really looking forward to this museum since we love Danish design. However, I thought it looked like the shows had been assembled by college students and didn't excite or capture the imagination. I would not recommend unless there is a specific special show that interests you.

“Perfect oldschool”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

It is amazing how chair can be interpreted! How many shapes, lines, textures, colors, DESIGNS can be involved. It is not only about the chairs but one can see the development of the applied (almost fine) arts on this example. Atmosphere of the museum is calm, a bit oldschool style, far from the city rush and the courtyard behind is gorgeous. Perfect 1,5 - 2 hours spent there.

whether this is an interest/passion for you, or not, there are some incredible innovational designs and creations inside. Over three floors, initially you think you'll cover it in 10mins, but if you take time to read about the properties of some of the materials utilised and engineering techniques you could easily spend half the day here.

“If you're into that thing!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Not really much to see unless you're into art and appreciate design and possibly antiques. I was looking at obviously uncomfortable furniture wondering what's so special about them (very little was explained and most of it was in danish), but my interior designer friend seemed quite pleased to be in there. The entrance is free for a small part of the museum, but at some point we realised we had seen the whole thing (no signs indicating you've left the free-of-charge area) without someone asking us to pay for a ticket.

“Worth a visit if it's raining!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

You have to pay for special exhibitions but the rest is free. We didn't realise that until attacked by a guard as we hadn't paid to see the furniture exhibition. The staff were as we found so often in Copenhagen, abrupt and unfriendly. There are some interesting exhibits here but having paid I would't want to visit again or recommend it to a friend.
