Designmuseum Denmark, Copenhagen
(3.4/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Walked for 30 minutes in the rain but was worth it. The eye the Danish have for design is fantastic and yet so simple when you look closely. All the normal chairs you see in restaurants or kitchens ev...  more »
  • A museum that houses objects of design Danish, from chairs, bicycles to a collection of costumes. Very original.

  • Really inspiring place for budding designers. I'm so impressed with the number of designers and iconic designs from Denmark!! I saw quite a few budding designers scribbling and drawing sketches. Very very nice exhibition. The Japan exhibition is very cute as well. I spent just over an hour there, but it was only because it was closing. I can easily spend more time here, as they have a nice cafe and outdoor seating as well, which would be beautiful if the weather was nicer. The price tags in the gift shop as expected was on the higher end, but they are all interesting stuff to see. Definitely a must go in Copenhagen. Iconic museum.
  • Amazing museum that has permanent exhibition on Danish art and design as well as temporary exhibitions. Hot chocolate in a museum's cafe highly recommended!
  • 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.
  • If you appreciate Danish design you will certainly enjoy visiting this place. I've never seen so many chairs in one museum! The BMW Spheres exhibit was on display when we visited and it was interesting to see the artist's journey from contemplation and concept to design and execution.
  • Nice museum. We visited during the Japan exhibition. The staff was very friendly, we recognised a lot of the classics and got some ideas for furnishing our home. Definitely worth a visit.
