The museum is in an old hospital building. We spent about an hour and 15 minutes looking over the exhibition. There's a lot of chairs. Like loads. I know that the gift shops are... read more

Really interesting, showing the development of Danish design over the years. Innovation and simplicity being the key features. There was also the bonus of a Christmas market in the courtyard when we visited. The cafe looked good, too, although unfortunately we didn't have time to try it out.

I am interested in design, so for me it was well worth a visit. There was a lot to see and it was very interesting. There is a nice cafe where you can take a break. I would recommend getting there early ( it opened at 11:00 when I visited) as it became busy as I was leaving at 13:00.... More

A lovely museum with a great shop and cafe and so much wonderful Danish design to explore. I thought it was a bit pricey to get in though.

It looks attractive, design museum, but it is a poor museum. It needs an update urgently en a lot of millions to lift the quality. Old, broken floor tiles; you had to kneel down to read the inscriptions. And there is not a single line in the expositions.

So much to see at this museum, it's not huge but the exhibits are very well done and if you have even a slight interest in design, you will want to view them all in detail. Clothing exhibits very interesting, as well as consumer goods/industrial design. It's all good. Plan to spend at least 2 hours, do try museum cafe,... More

Walked for 30 minutes in the rain but was worth it. The eye the Danish have for design is fantastic and yet so simple when you look closely. All the normal chairs you see in restaurants or kitchens everywhere are probably of Danish design with bamboo bicycles, blow up seats at outdoor concerts, chairs made from recycled newspaper and cardboard,...

Very interesting museum - V&A meets Design Centre (if you know London). Particularly extensive and interesting exhibition of chair design (mostly 20th century). Good cafe.

The design museum is a modern museum with all kinds of design from 1800 till now. It was funny to see daily objects sometimes things that you use daily to see in a museum.

I'm not very knowledgeable about design, but you don't need to be in order to enjoy this museum—there's something inside for everyone's tastes. Besides everything you'd expect (Danish Modern, Arne Jacobsen...) there are quite a few objects that will make you stop in your tracks, or sigh with nostalgia, or open your eyes to take in an amazing detail. There's... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
