“Great place for an afternoon of bad weather”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

The best of Danish design, well laid out. Don't miss the glass canisters with the different kind of wood shavings to sniff in the section on furniture design. Colourful and interesting gift shop too.

“Only go if you like design”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

The museum is still under renovation so not really worth the entrance fee. However the 20th century exhibit to the right of the entry was interesting and thought provoking.
The museum itself is well laid out and informative. Gift shop nice but, as in all of Denmark, quite pricey. As other comments, a visit to Ilum department store is just as interesting to see new designs.
Would only visit if all exhibits available to view.

“Neat, unique museum”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

I went to the Design museum upon the recommendation of a Dane and am glad I went! The museum showcases a variety of works and exhibitions that are interesting to both people studying design/architecture and people who are not (like myself). From chairs, cupboards, porcelain, lighting, etc there are many pieces that make you pause and study how they were constructed. And an added bonus: students get free admission if they show a University ID card! I would recommend coming to this museum if you need somewhere to go on a rainy day or simply want to explore a unique place.

“Beautiful Museum”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

I wasn’t expecting much of the museum, but I had a very positive surprise. The museum presents in a very organized and coherent way the development of design through history. I would definitely recommend it for those interested in design, arquitecture and arts.
An other important thing is that students that present a student-id dont have to pay :)

“Sucks!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

There is nothing to watch her! It is waste of your money and not recommended at all! Save your effort and visit other interesting places. This place is terrible.
