A pretty nice museum if you are interested in Denmark's design, especially in chair/furniture design. On top you will find a nice little shop as well as a café.

Really enjoyed the museums various aspects including Asian artefacts, clothing and interiors. Was great for us as students get in for free. Definitely worth a visit.

This museum offers an excellent permanent collection with examples of Denmark’s greatest designs; you will definitely recognize everyday objects that perhaps you didn’t know were from Danish designers, such as “The Egg” chair. There’s a special mention of Sydney’s Opera House, designed by the Copenhagen...More

This museum was one of our must see venues. However, after visiting, it was interesting, showing the various designs that were developed in Denmark from chairs to kettles etc. It was also included in the Copenhagen Card. However, if we had to pay for entry...More

This museum gives you a good overview of Danish design. At least I didn't know that there are so many different kind of beautiful and fascinating chairs before I visited this museum. At some point it may feel like you'd be walking in a labyrinth,...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
