Founded in 1918 by cartoonist and adventurer Robert Ripley. Dubbed by many "The Modern Marco Polo", Ripley became America's most popular celebrity of his time.

  • The Museum is different, but who has been on some other network, you won't find anything much different. Is next to the exhibition of Hans Christian Andersen, we found more cool.

  • Certainly there are a lot of fascinating objects to look at and the deviant is always exciting, but this time has been running away from Ripley's. Bad should perhaps be replaced by the tornado, but in any case nothing I can recommend.

  • The museum is a bit hit and miss with some interesting exhibits and some less so. It's actually a lot larger than it looks from the ticket booth. Some of it is a bit dated. Seems to have a big focus o...  more »

  • We were the only ones in the museum the entire time somehow, so I was a bit apprehensive at first thinking it may not be that great. I was pleasantly surprised. The museum took about an hour, maybe a bit more, to go through so it has plenty of interesting material. There were a few jump-scares and illusions that were actually very clever and made the experience really fun and entertaining.
  • I have been here a lot of times. I love it! It's a lot of crazy stuff and history. Really a great place for kids!
  • So interesting thing, many new and that I hear before but glad to see in real
  • Expensive "museum". Kids found it interesting though.
  • Needs to be updated. Very small museum - not super interesting. Some fun facts though. It was interesting to see, but I would probably not go again.

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.
