This place is easy to get to and has a fantastic display of the history of Danish design. It is very clearly explained and discussed.

A peaceful place to have a delicious lunch after taking in the museum- an old hospital. Good to see a display on the development of a product. Lovely display of chairs, each in its own cubicle with a description.

We were disappointed that there were no guided tours. The museum would be great if an audio tour was available. The entrance ticket was expensive for what we saw.

Nothing interactive, nothing about the design process except some videos. Essentially, you are better off in a shopping mall. Surely a design museum of this kind should have a better user experience.

The museum is interesting at best. The bamboo bike is probably the most fascinating thing to see. 115Dk is also quite expensive in my view. This museum is begging for an audio tour. Having that will make it 5 times more interesting. I rather do...More

If you like chairs... come here! They have literal walls of iconic chairs. Exhibition showing Danish and European design for the last few centuries was also interesting.

Fascinating collections that detail the origins and evolution of danish design. Didn't know the role that danish chairs played in Kennedy-Nixon debates or silverware in Kubrick's 2001. Worth an afternoon--great cafe and courtyard if you need a break.

Though I’m not particularly a fan of Danish design this was an interesting museum. Be sure to watch the movie that tells you about how some of the designs came about based on what was going on during the war.

We wanted to visit this museum having read endless articles about Hygge. Each house must have a statement lamp and a statement chair and lots of candles - so we went here. There were 5 of us, Mum Dad and kids aged 17,19&21. It was...More

We spent 3 hours in the museum today and they have an impressive collection. What lacked was coherence between the exhibitions and interactivity. With a museum this size, most people don't spend too much time reading the novels on the wall. So I never quite...More

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

I can't say for sure, but I bet it is. If the front entrance only has stairs there will likely be a side entrance. Because Denmark has a lot of old buildings, accessibility is lower than in the US, but on the whole, things... More
