  • You could easily miss this attraction in Copenhagen, because it receives little publicity - we only found out about it because it is located near our accommodation, which was a 15 - 20 minute walk from the CBD. Our visit to this museum turned out to be one of the highlights of our stay in Copenhagen. The museum is located in an old Police Station, which significantly, was once the centre of police action in response to a major riot that happened nearby a few decades ago. However, the museum doesn't just present a history of the police force in Denmark. It also deals with the administration of justice, including crime and punishment. It was interesting to see how then crimes such as prostitution and pornography were dealt with in the past, as well as how basic the forensic techniques were 100 years or more ago. There are interesting displays of police regalia, equipment, those early forensic techniques and of course, police cells. While the text of the descriptions on the displays is in Danish, there are a number of English language guides that are provided at reception, for loan, free of charge. Unfortunately, the English language guides do not include all of the items on display, but because the displays are so visual, the lack of English text is not a problem. The Museum is operated by volunteer staff, mostly former police officers from what we could determine. This means that the opening hours are limited, so you should check online first to establish when the museum is open. All in all, this was a very interesting place to visit.
  • This type of museum falls in the category of "edgy" museums for me, meaning that it is not for your usual tourist. That means that I also have lower expectations when visiting such a museum. I was however pleasantly surprised by the quality of the exhibition. I spent there almost two hours, and given the fact that I do not understand Danish and only had a guide book, I would say that is pretty much. The museum is structured very well and has a lot of interesting stories, the museum itself being a former police station. The police cases are very well documented with facts. There is not too much interaction which is a shame since that would boost excitement. I managed myself pretty well with the provided English guide book, however, more in deep information would have been nice, since I felt like I've missed some interesting pieces. On and all, a place worth visiting.
  • I expected more and more ... But when you look at that it only cost 40 kr, it is well okay ... I think, however, that there may have been more information about any of the newer police cases.. However, they have many photos and information about 18/5 1998 (now I'm not actually sure it was the year 😕)
