Um museu bastante grande e interessante uma manhã não deu para ver tudo. parece um labirinto mas é bastante completo e bem dividido pelas diferentes temáticas. more »A very large and interesting museum one morning could not see everything. It looks like a maze but is quite complete and well divided by the different themes.
Nice museum in the center of the city. On the three main floors you can see the history of Denmark. There are also several side-exhibitions which I did not see. There are many items on display but also a lot of text and graphics to give the contexts. Some movies throughout the some short movies throughout the museums complement the experience. They would improve a bit the number of maps and info graphs as well as the interactive elements which are almost completely missing. At the entrance there is a small coffee place with cookies and on the second floor there is restaurant.
A very interesting place. Highly recommend for children. It is informative and kids enjoy it. It has a lot of different areas which it covers and the artifacts are well kept. I am so glad that my kids enjoyed it throughly and their excitement will last for long.
