  • A very large and interesting museum one morning could not see everything. It looks like a maze but is quite complete and well divided by the different themes.

  • Nice museum in the center of the city. On the three main floors you can see the history of Denmark. There are also several side-exhibitions which I did not see. There are many items on display but also a lot of text and graphics to give the contexts. Some movies throughout the some short movies throughout the museums complement the experience. They would improve a bit the number of maps and info graphs as well as the interactive elements which are almost completely missing. At the entrance there is a small coffee place with cookies and on the second floor there is restaurant.
  • A very interesting place. Highly recommend for children. It is informative and kids enjoy it. It has a lot of different areas which it covers and the artifacts are well kept. I am so glad that my kids enjoyed it throughly and their excitement will last for long.
