  • Educational about all aspects of Danish history and culture, including daily life, arts, culture, religion, government, and war. Informative, easy to explore in whatever level of detail you want. Friendly employees, and graphically very cool. Only small thing, wish there were more historical maps of Denmark, for those that don't know the names of the different regions of it! Otherwise great
  • Simply brilliant museum. Starting from stone age the museum takes you through key stages of the development of danish people's. It was excellent. Easy to follow and very logical. The Viking section was also good with loads of info as well as a huge longship. The Viking raid was atmospheric but I felt it over long and could have been sharper. Cafe good too
