The Design Museum Denmark puts the Design Museum in London into the shade, but it has been around for considerably longer. Founded in 1890 as the Danish Museum of Decorative Art the museum moved into the former Frederiks Hospital (built 1752–57) in 1926 with alterations carried out by architects Kaare Klint and Ivar Bentsen. From the outside, it doesn't look... More

I've visited the Design museum and it is an interesting museum that presents a variety of design relating to furniture (mainly). The museum has appropriate signage and labelling. There is a cafe/restaurant within the museum and a lovely gift shop that sells a variety of design books; quirky gifts and home wear. My favourite part of the museum when I... More

What a treat to be in the fantastic Museum of Danish design. I was well aware of Danish Design since 1982 when I was buying Danish designed objects (via mail order) from a store called Den Permanente. Den Permanente was a significant gallery and design shop in Copenhagen which sadly is no longer. Way too cool! My third eye is... More

A museum in a very art part of Copenhagen. On the way there you pass a lot of galleries and antique shops. The building is old but the exhibitions are most of the time contemporary. Delicious food in the restaurant, but slow service. The atmosphere is great though.

We visited The Design Museum as we had heard many good things and it did not disappoint! There are many interactive features which break up the usual routine of art galleries/museums for those that are not 'into design'. This museum showcases many fun and historical design creations, and artwork, and is definitely a must-see for those wishing to have a... More

Very nice and comprehensive oversight of mostly Scandinavian design. Worth a visit without doubt. Not really "kid" proof

We spend about 3 hours here and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits. We emailed them (via website link) to see if they had facilities to store our airport luggage as we were visiting the museum straight from the airport before checking in out AirBNB accommodation. We got a reply the following day confirming cloakroom facilities and lockers. A friendly member of... More

The building used to be a hospital, and there are still a number of original features to look out for. Really interesting exhibitions that make you think about life. The café serves lunch and food until late afternoon and you can watch the chefs cooking. Food and tea quality was excellent. Don't miss the outside wall with a plaque commemorating... More

Designmuseum in Copenhagen is a great museum to visit. The place offers to witness the displays of decorative art, crafts, made by famous danish designs such as Kaare Klint, Poul Henningsen and Arne Jacobsen. The museum also presents temporary exhibitions. Most of the collections in the museum are permanent display. Also on display are ancient Chinese and Japanese ceramics from... 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.
