    Without hesitation an ornament to the city! Most of the information is also in english. Modern facilities and a rich multicultural material will keep your interest for more than 3 hours. Free entrance

    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.

    Fantastic museum and it's for free! Maybe it doesn't look too impressive from the outside but the contents! A must if you visit Copenhagen!

    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. 👍

    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.

    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!

    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!!

    The old ceremony hall (Festsalen) on the upper floor above the main entrance is great for conferences. Beautiful setting and good acoustics!

    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!

    The exhibits on display are very extensive. You'll need more than a day to go through everything the museum has to offer!

    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.

    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.
