Interesting museum obviously focused on Danish design from different times. It’s a rectangular building and you can wander around in either direction at you own pace. You could spend an hour there or several (but you’d need to be really interested). A lot of the...More

An impressive, huge museum to visit. There was almost too much to see, unless this is your passion. One room alone had possibly over 100 chairs to see. The cafe has very tasty food, which we hadn't experienced this type of food previously. Crowed inside...More

A really nice way to view Danish design through time. I particularly enjoyed the chair exhibit. I took many photos. It was fun. Surprisingly, the place where we were staying had a lot of the chairs and lamps on display at the museum.

I visited the museum on a Wednesday evening when they're open late (usually close at 6pm but are open til 9pm on Wednesdays). I caught the 6:30pm free tour in English. The 30 min tour didn't cover the whole museum, just the feature exhibit and...More
