The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Highly recommended!
Oct 2019
The Danes have a knack for designing items for functionality, amusement and/or aesthetics. That's all on display at the Designmuseum.

The first exhibit is all about everyday objects, and is the right handshake to set the tone. Much of the museum is about things people actually engage with (as opposed to just looking at). So you'll find fashion, chairs, vases, tapestries, poster art, etc., through various historical lenses & influences.

The level of creativity & originality on display here is off the charts. I'd budget 3 hours to do it right.

Not worth the price
Feb 2020
If you're a student or you have another way of getting free entrance to this museum- visit, otherwise it's not worth your money. There are many design and furniture stores on the same street right next to the museum (go further south) which most of the items there were also in the museum…

There are probably better museums to visit unless you really like chairs!
Mar 2020
It's quite expensive to enter and, thankfully, not that big. If you like a chair then there is an exhibit on Danish chairs that will suit you. At the time of our visit, there was also an exhibit on the rise of disco and club culture which was pretty interesting and, almost, made it worth the trip.

Loved it!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had a fantastic time at the design museum during our visit to Copenhagen. The exhibits are really well put together and there’s loads on show, much bigger than it seemed on first impressions. Fantastic shop also! Plus make sure you time it to have lunch in the cafe! Amazing Smørrebrød!!

Really cool
Jan 2020
Very interesting and really cool place to visit. Filled with recognisable items that have all come from Denmark. My favourite bit was the music rooms. One is an elevated space that is concealed from passserbys and you can listen to loads of different music to everyone around you on earphones. So cool and such fun watching everyone dancing. Also students go free with a student card.

A must for anyone who's a fan of design
Dec 2019
We dropped in here because it's a must for anyone who is either involved in, or a fan of, design. Absolutely worth a visit. The collection of the many examples of the danish chair over the years alone is worth a visit, but it's a small part of a great collection where you can spend hours.
