...Definitly go there. The collection is really breathtaking! I spend two hours and a half looking at the collection. The exhibition "Microsculpture" also *really* vault the visit! (till 19.11.2017) And the plus is if you also want to visit the Zoological Museum, you get a...More

We mainly visited this building to see the microsculpture insect portraits of Levon Biss (on until November 2017). These photos are spectacular. The museum has an interesting collection of rocks and meteorites..

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.

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.

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
