The National Museum of Denmark

The entire history of Denmark comes to life at the National Museum.

At the National Museum, the skeletons more or less fall out of the closets. See the remains of the people who lost their lives during tribal wars of the Stone Age. The woman who survived a blow from a stone axe and covered her mutilated head with a hat. The girl of Egtved, who lived during a magnificent time - the Bronze Age - when Danes worshipped the sun and engaged in early international trade.

History binds us together
See the testimonies of the greatest triumphs and tragedies in history, both within Denmark and in the rest of the World. The National Museum showcases and documents the World's intangible cultural heritage; the cultural treasures discovered in the Danish soil and those which adventurers have brought back home from expeditions to the most distant parts of the World.
At the National Museum, our common history embraces both the young and the old. The children can play in the Children's Museum or find and press the Boredom Buttons that enable animals to talk, mummies to mysteriously move, and exhibitions to catch fire out of the blue.

Accessibility at the National Museum of Denmark:

The museum is easily accessible to wheelchair users. There are lifts to all floors and wheelchair accessible restrooms. It is also possible to borrow a wheelchair at the museum.
