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

We didn't plan to visit this museum, but ended up spending more time that in any other museum. My kids love military history and there is plenty to see here.

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
