Overall I'm not too enthusiastic about this museum. Some stuff is definitely interesting and worth seeing, such as a huge dinosaur bone or extinct animal's skeletons but there is also something on display that I felt was quite disturbing and disgusting like a whale's fetus,...More

Very nice Museum, with a lot of informations about animals. Besides real bones and stuffed animals, you can also touch some of them and there is a special area for kids (or parents ;) ), where they can pretend to be scientists! Only negative point...More

If you love natural history, bones and taxidermy, the Zoological Museum is a MUST. It's a bit of a trek, we got the train (REALLY easy to navigate) to Nørrebro and walked twenty minutes with the help of Google Maps, but in nice weather it's...More

We took our two kids 3 and 7 to the museum. They could touch, play and explore for hours. It was great. The newer exhibits are both in Danish and English. The older exhibits were just in Danish but that didn't matter to us. Great...More

I used almost 4-5 hours to see everything. And I love it. Just remember that if it's a cold day, it might be windy and you feel even more cold than it really is.

We went with two small children aged 4. We saw skeletons of whales, and all sorts. We also watched a movie of a stranded whale that massively impressed the kids. In a room there were loads of skeletons of plastic to play with from different...More

Located just north of The Lakes, this neighbourhood is
a melting pot of small quirky clothing stores, dozens
of pizzerias and eateries of all types, a street
almost entirely devoted to antiques, several
microbreweries and even a couple of Michelin starred
restaurants. Here you’ll also find Assistens Cemetery
which is an ecclectic mix of tombstones as well as a
recreational park and where you will find the
