An interesting walk thru danish design history. I agree there are a lot of items and some are not displayed well. Don’t miss out on a snack in the little cafe.

I enjoyed visiting this museum. The Danish Chair exhibit was so informative and enlightening! "It shows how recent Danish furniture design can be seen with roots far back in history and in foreign cultures." Special exhibits that I especially liked were Fashion and Fabric, and...More

One can’t deny Danish creativity in design, but the place was bombarding us with items on every turn, which didn’t allow us to have the real experience of a museum. The path of a visitor wasn’t that well organized either, we were going back and...More

Well laid out. Great exhibits. Had some lovely items to purchase in the shop so had to buy a few. Cakes in the cafe lovely even though I didn’t try them as had to leave to meet friends.

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

Allow yourself enough time as a lot is packed in to this relatively small museum built around a square lawn. There is lots that is familiar and lots that is very new. Although there is not a huge amount of information on the exhibit descriptions...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

We took a guided tour in English which was free once the admission was paid. Really enjoyed hearing about a diverse selection of chairs and how Danish design became an international brand. There was a wide spectrum of contemporary design,like furniture, product design, graphic, design,...More

Interesting museum. We didn’t realize it would begin with Japan and take so long to get to what we think of as modern Danish design, of which there is less than we expected. And it was stuffy enough to make us less interested than we...More

This museum is the one to see! Get there early to avoid the crowds and go to the left first to get the history of design and the influence of the Japanese on Danish design. Be sure to also watch the video on Borge Mogensen....More
