I thought this museum was excellent, the building is unique, with great paintings, there is a huge collection of meteors, there was a neat exhibit of insect photography, and it hooked into the botanical garden. All told, a good place to visit.

The Geologisk Museum across the street from Rosenborg Castle has a world-class collection of meteorites, including a giant one sitting out in the courtyard before you enter.

Not too big so you only really need an hour. Not all the exhibitions were in English, which was a pity. The meteorite in the yard outside is very impressive.

Fascinating exhibits. One of our favorite finds in the city. (Another one is the food market nearby). Maybe it is not for everybody but if you think maybe you'd like it, you will. Our one complaint is that one section is only in Danish. But,...More

Fantastic meteorites. Just seeing the large meteorite that was found in and removed from Greenland was worth the visit. Inside, a slice of the meteorite was polished and on display. It took 400 hours to cut just one slice. Very impressive. There are several other...More

As last reviewer bit in English to start with rest in Dutch only and very dated, as much potential if modernised and more interactive, very few visitors today

Indre By (Inner City)
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
