For the pure geologist, the large mineral collection will probably be the most interesting part. For young kids, it's probably the dinosaur exhibition. The Wormianum installation is possibly the most unique bit. There is some diversity here, but it's all in mostly small bits. And...More

Along with most of the other things we visited, we arrived here with a Copenhagen card and so admittance was free. Once inside we were pleasantly surprised with the vast collection of minerals that were in the museum, though my girlfriend studies Geology so perhaps...More

In addition to the very good exhibit on dinosaurs there was a really interesting set of rocks and minerals. Denmark has an association with Greenland and so we saw some rocks and minerals rarely seen elsewhere.

There is a huge meteorite in the courtyard which sets the tone. There is a dinosaur and rocks,bugs,insects and lots of other stuff to keep you busy for a long while. It's a relaxing museum to visit. Signs are only in Danish.

Visited here after cycling to the botanical gardens. The huge insect posters drew us in and we were not disappointed. This temporary photographic work features enormous digital prints of insects, so find you can see every hair on their legs. This, along with the geological...More

We mainly visited this building to see the microsculpture insect portraits of Levon Biss (on until November 2017). These photos are spectacular. The museum has an interesting collection of rocks and meteorites..

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
