Owner description: The National Museum of Denmark is the largest culture-historical museum in Denmark. The museum is a dynamic cultural institution offering a great variety of exhibitions and activities. Our artefacts come from all over the world and from different time periods. We can take you on a journey, traveling thousands of years through time and experience everything from the Danish national treasure the Golden Horns and the 3000 year old Egtved Girl to African masks and Egyptian mummies. In the Children's Museum, you can see and try things that show how people ate, worked, played and dressed hundreds of years ago in different environments.

This museum is fantastic. Lots of exhibits I’ve never seen elsewhere and the building is packed full of interesting objects. The museum is great for kids with loads going on, but it’s a manageable size without being overwhelming. Highly recommend.

Beautiful museum, classic National History museum. Go for the Danish specific areas, they are very well done! The session of Danish history from 1600-2000 was so cool, you could spend an hour walking through and reading! The Viking part on the floor level is also very well done!

Do not forget to visit this museum if you are in Denmark. You will discover there all the History of Denmark, from its magnificient Prehistory. There is a gap with the Viking Age, but the Museum Team is working in a new section about them. The Ancient Antiquities section contains a nice selection of items and artworks from Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and Rome.
