    This is a huge museum. You can spend 3-4 hours easily. The Children’s Museum on the ground floor is great for kids.

    Great exhibitions. They have a huge amount of artifacts and we spent a good 2 hrs walking through the museum. I recommend the Copenhagen Card, as admission is free.

    The international section upstairs is amazing. The old display cases and just right lighting is something straight out of a Wes Anderson movie. You could spend hours looking through it all. 👍

    Exhibitions are extraordinary and the museum covers various time periods from danish history. Besides you can find the ancient times there but be prepared for a long tour over museum.

    Could spend an entire day here - the most comprehensive museum in the city and a must for anyone interested in viking history or history in general.

    As for the collection, it is outstanding, so please go. The pre-historic part has just been brought up to date and is of internatinal standard. For kids, visit Børnemuseet at the ground floor.

    You will need to go there early, there are many things to see. 3 hours minimum! (at least for me, as I like to take my time reading everything).

    First time visitors and tourists shouldn't miss the 'Danish Prehistory' exhibition and the 'Stories of Denmark 1660-2000' exhibtion. Begin your visit just to the left of the entrance hall.

    We visited with two kids (2 & 4 yo) and had a good time. The children's wing is really nice and interactive. And: this museum is free!!

    Prepare for lots of walking... I'd recommend splitting your visit in two days, or even more, if you really want to see everything. Great place to spend your day!

    avoid, if the outside temperature is above 25 degrees. they lack air condition. the nationalmuseet is great though. many different stories are told and ages are shown.

    Unfortunately the state museums, including this one, no longer have a free admission. It is free, though, to visit the museum shop and Restaurant/Café Julian.

    The best museum I've been to! The way they display the historical facts is really intuitive and it makes you want to read everything!

    Very interesting. It's free and there's free Wi-Fi. Tons of unruly kids, people who can't understand you don't leave through doors marked EXIT and constant alarms drags it down a bit.

    Hey've got The best prehistorical Danish museum section I've ever experienced. Medieval section rather old and decay, need improvements. They use Twitter and foursquare actively, though: really cool!

    Don't expect a huge Viking exhibition, but learn real history of the pre-history through late Bronze Age people's around here instead on the ground floor.

    Takes around an hour to see just one out of three floors so be prepared to spend there at least three hours.

    If you've been in important museums (Paris, Rome, Madrid...), skip this one. Too expensive for what you get. Things throw in and lots of text to read. Zero interactive displays or audiovisuals.
