I just came out, and bit disappointing, to be honest. Trip advisor had today a ca 4,5 stars for this museum but it is not that worth. I love weapons and history but in this museum many of the explanations to the canons were missing...More
This museum used to house one of the largest colections of small firearms. When visiting the museum for the first time i spent hours here. Regretfully this enourmous collection has been closed for the public.
Will not visit again.
The sheer number and type of cannons in this museum make it a worthwhile stop. They are held in a lovely vaulted space, and are interesting for all ages. Upstairs are displays of armor, swords, and many more military items. There are a lot of...More
Very interesting museum! Separated into Army & Navy, with lots of interesting scale models of ships and battles. Helps explain some of the important historical events. Does not appear to have an elevator, and most of the exhibits are on the second floor, up a...More
Yes, this museum is for past military equipment and some more recent exhibits, but there is so much of general historic interests that there should be something for all. And thinking about what we read in history books; that is about wars and battles. Here...More
Two floors of varied exhibitions, the ground floor has lots of old cannons and a very good current Afghanistan exhibit but in Danish only. The first floor has lots of Danish military history in very modern display cabinets with English language explanations included throughout. The...More

This is an excellent venue for a half day out. As well as covering all things on danish military history, there is a fantastic Afghanistan exhibition which is poignant and realistic and reflects the contibution that Denmark made. Definately worth a visit.
The museum itself, from downstairs, doesn't look terribly exciting however we have no grounds for complaint as we had the Copenhagen Card and so our entry was inclusive.
That being said, once we got upstairs we found a huge amount of exhibits including military outfits,...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
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.
