We came here for the restaurant but since it was free to visit with our Copenhagen Card, we stayed in the museum for a while after lunch. We had visited several years before and not much seems to have been changed. There were several elevators and you just had to find them and know which ones went to which floors.... More

I took my two children (10 and 14) to this museum to get a different experience in our own town. We certainly did experience a lot about the working people and the developmen over time. We will certainly come back again.

A smallish but interesting museum on several floors of an old building - costs DKK75. The stairs are somewhat steep and narrow, but you can get a key card from the reception to access the other floors with an elevator. Well worth a visit.

Gives a great view into the life of Copenhagen workers the last 200 years or so. Nice interiors from homes and factories. The museum have a big area for kids to play and get to know how previous generations struggled. Well worth a visit for any age - or why not the whole extended family. A great traditional Danish restaurant... More

This museum gives you the greatest opportunity to show your grandchildren the story of Denmark in your childhood. Walking around watching, listening and touching items from both the beginning the 1930ies, and the growing wealth for ordinary people is awesome. Go for it.

Some nice exhibits that give a good feel for the time period. The Assembly Hall is also a nice piece of history. There is also one of the better gift shops.

There information is presented poorly and there is little wealth of historical content. It is only partly translated so English speakers will find less information than native speakers. It is disappointing because it was a good concept for a museum. I would recommend other museums above this one.

Took our teens to have a look around and it turned into a bit of a nostalgic trip down memory lane seeing items on display that my own grandparents had in their home. Well laid out, many displays in englush too, free for under 18s, not expensive for us. Good value

Well laid out and interesting museum of the workers/social democratic movement in Denmark. Great to see Grandma's kitchen!

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
