Museum of Copenhagen


Copenhagen is one of the world’s most livable cities. But who are the Copenhageners and what kind of city is Copenhagen? Begin your visit in Copenhagen at the Museum of Copenhagen, located in a beautiful, historical building right behind City Hall. You’ll be introduced to all the most important places and events in the history of the Danish capital. From the city of the Viking Age, through the building boom and plague, fires and bombings, to the free city of Christiania today. A vast array of unique, original exhibits bring the city and its people to life. Our interactive model gives you an overview of the entire city – perhaps you will end up as a Copenhagener yourself!


  • See the 600 years old shipwreck of a keel
  • Examine an early edition of today’s Copenhageners’ favourite means of transport – the bicycle!
  • Get an overview of the city on the Copenhagen Panorama with our large scale, interactive model.

In a hurry? Se the highlights of the museum in just 30 minutes.
