3.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Designmuseum Denmark showcases a relatively small collection of Danish design classics from phones and stereos to chairs and kitchen utensils. Look for Royal Copenhagen and Georg Jensen tableware. Each year the center also features a number of special exhibits on both Danish and international design. The building houses a gift shop, conference rooms, and a cafe offering a traditional cafe layout in a modern lounge environment. Get a quick cup of coffee to go while roaming through the exhibits, or stay put for a cup of tea and a croissant.

  • This museum is dedicated to design with tons of stuff from the fifties and sixties, well marked, lit and displayed. A must. 
  • great Museum for fans of Scandinavian design sweeping the small everyday objects (electro small household, tableware, etc.), fashion/textiles (fabrics, accessories, pap and couture dresses) and made the beautiful part in furniture (nice collection of chairs and Chair), noted a beautiful very quiet courtyard in which it may be nice to take the time to stroll Attention , property should not be confused with the danish design center, which offers more public exhibitions (but which is yet proposed in the recent guides)

  • While the content was interesting the presentation, the facility and the atmosphere was somewhat tired compared to (i) other museums I've visited around the world, with some being in less economically...  read more »
  • Some cool stuff. I liked what I saw, but every time I thought "what a cool chair, let me see if it's comfortable", there was that pesky sign: "Please do not touch". I get it that everyone trying stuff would get it ruined very fast, but would it be possible to have some replicas that could be touched and tried? Some (apparently) good designs though.
  • Truly a very nice museum if you like Scandinavian design. It is mainly focussed on furniture and household items. The chairs and lamps are something I really enjoyed looking at. The building itself is majestic. We were able to go through the museum rather fast.
  • Without a shadow of doubt this is the best place to get a good understanding of what "Danish design" is and why it is so appealing. Although it hosts other exhibitions, it's the focus on furniture especially chairs that is well explained. From the Danish and English explanatory scripts you get to understand why the Danes became so good at design starting in the early 1900's and you can begin to get to know the key figures such as Arne Jacobssen, Verner Panton and Hand Wegner. Very much worth the visit.
  • This place is great, done really cool pieces that show off the famous Danish design. Especially if you like chairs. Students go free too which is a bonus. Gift shop has some interesting stuff but horrendously expensive (as you'd imagine).
  • For me the museum was too focused on furniture wich I though was disappointing. Furthermore the museum was not built smartly because you had to pass twice in some big room to see different parts of the museum. But still the people working there were friendly.
