The museum is amazing and there is so much information and military items. It is interesting to walk through time with the different military items as you walk down the room downstairs. Upstairs there is the navel section; included within this there are a few...More

This museum is terrific. Two large floors of military items. The ground level has cannons and artillery from ancient times to modern day. The upstairs contains uniforms and swords as well as dioramas of Copenhagen and exhibits that discuss key battles and moments in Denmark's...More

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.

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
