Owner description: The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum houses permanent exhibitions about war, defence and weapon technology, and presents Danish military history from the 1500s until today. Experience the exhibition "Denmark's Wars" in the museum's large Rustkammersal and "A Distant War - a Danish Soldier in Afghanistan", an exhibition in which you can feel the atmosphere of a Danish combat group in Afghanistan.

The museum consists of 2 floors. The first seemed to act more as a storage room for cannons than as a coherent display of weaponry, but the second floor was very well done. It’s one long floor where the exhibits are laid out in a timeline of danish war history. There are also a huge number of model ships and other artifacts. We spent easily a couple of hours on this floor alone.

If you like your military history this is a must. With lots of displays, uniforms, models and weapons/artillery pieces; it is easy to spend several hours here. As someone who spent 20 years in the British armed forces, I was hugely impressed with the ‘Distant War’ exhibition which features a mock up forward operating base from the conflict in Afghanistan. With incredible attention to detail it certainly brought back many memories. Excellent !!

The ground floor is a traditional arsenal/ armoury museum with rows of cannon and guns with cannon balls in piles. There is a Afghanistan experience n the ground floor too- feels like a different museum and I suspect is not a long term part of the displays

Upstairs is a much more impressive series of cabinets and details - took so many photos!

Ran out of time here - wife and daughter turned up from Theatre Museum
Impressed
