Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Just in case you were planning to visit the exhibition. Don't bother. It closed 2 years ago. Shame nobody bothered to mention that!

Thank Gary P

“Not worth visiting”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

The building has a really stylish exterior but it is in fact a cafe with offices, not a design museum.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I went their expecting to see displays of famous Danish designers' works and to learn more about the history of Danish design, but instead found nothing but a cafe and sitting area in the 1st floor (although they seemed to be in the midst of setting up some kind a display), and some offices you could look into in the 2nd floor.

“No exhibition & terrible service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

There was nothing going on here at all so we decided to have a coffee. Approached the counter & a young guy gave us a menu & told us to sit down as he would come to the table. He then clearly forgot we were there, difficult as there were only a couple of other customers. After some time he came over & I think he must have travelled to Brazil to get the coffee......give it a miss.
