  • It is a dated, but a very interesting museum of you like science, minerals, rocks and/or gems. Best part for me was to see all the strange mineral formations.  more »

  • Boring as hell, almost nothing is translated or explained in an interesting manor, probably unchanged since the 80's. Much more interesting things to do in Copenhagen
  • A large collection with some interesting exhibits. A mix of old and new, clearly some exhibits haven't been updated in many years (as you can tell by the look, but also some of the content, eg Pluto listed as a planet), but others seem recent. Very inexpensive entrance at 40kr for adults. Important to note that about half of the exhibits only have Danish text; however there is enough in English to keep non-Danish speakers entertained as well.
  • It is worth a visit. Entrance fee was DKK40
  • Second floor has a huge mineral collection. Some very unique samples too. Changing exhibits are interesting as well. There's a curious and rare exhibit with some nice odd things to see. Huge meteorite in the square. Overall, about 2 hours to see. And at 40 kroner, pretty inexpensive.
  • Nice meteorite at the entrance. Everything goes down hill after that. Very cheap entrance, but exhibition is frozen in the 1970s. For instance, there are some nice rocks from Jugosławia and Africa city. Most exhibitions are all in Danish and content wise they are equivalent to primary school geography class. Some rooms smell weird. On the second floor you will find and exhaustive collection of one (and sometimes two) of every rock on the planet. This sound fun, and it is for the first 3 minutes, but it is a bit like watching paint dry after that. One of the hallways in the otherwise nice building seemed to be painted by the local kindergarteners with blindfolds on (what a way to ruin a building!). What this place needs is a serious remodeling. Hire a newly graduated Liberal Arts and Sciences student and bring some life (and political correctness) back to this otherwise depressing building. The displays don't attract the eye and it really is only interesting to someone with a degree or a or a keen interest in geology. If you have 1.5 hrs 2.5 euros and no expectations then drop by.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
