This museum is full of story of Copenhagen since the time of city gates and walls. Some interesting stories include the things they found underground while digging for the metro-line, which tell you a lot about the old time. You can also find the story of Dutch farmer who come to Denmark after the invitation of the King and the... More

I wasn't able to actually go inside since I visited during Christmas. The museum is located in the center of Vesterbro near the planetarium and Copenhagen train station.

This museum looks at the idea of the identity of the city and what it means to be a "Copenhagener" in the past, present, and looking towards the future. The exhibits are carefully constructed to look at this identity, and although the themes are somewhat universal there is enough here to show the unique charm of the city. It seems... More

Dear Chris, Thank you for your kind words, we really appreciate them. We do open again, but it will take a couple of years to get everything in place at our new museum in Stormgade 18 in central Copenhagen. We aim to continue our efforts to make relevant exhibitions about Copenhagen with general aspects of life in a metropolis, and... More

The exhibits when we visited were about as local as you could get. It all felt a little patched together but I think in some way that is the idea, showing how Copenhagen has been patched together through the centuries with waves of immigration, prejudice, integration, etc. I guarantee that if you spend an hour or so here, you will...

An interesting old three story house. The first two stories are filled with exhibits telling some of the history of Copenhagen. Certainly a "minor" museum, but the price was right (free). I would not include it on a one or two day Copenhagen stay, but our visit is eight days, so we would recommend it for a couple of hours.

The museum has very interesting subjects about Copenhagen. A good way to know more about this beautiful city. My kids loved the place, on the top of the building there is a big room with lego's toys in order to create a city with imagination. They loved to stay more than an hour in that room.

This museum has the best exhibition on Søren Kierkegaard's life anywhere in the world. A must-see for any philosophy and existentialism enthusiast.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
