The National Museum

The Vikings are here! 
The National Museum’s new exhibition welcomes visitors to the multifaceted universe of the Vikings. A völva with a deeply lined face and equally deep eyes stares out at visitors. Opposite her three helmeted but otherwise stark naked berserker warriors look visitors right in the eye. The exhibition scenography has been designed by Jim Lyngvild. The exhibition includes one of Denmark’s largest treasure troves of gold and silver jewelry. 

Iconic treasures of Danish history 
Experience world-famous highlights with a starring role in Danish history. Runestones, The Golden Horns, the hash stall that has become a symbol of Danish liberal-mindedness and the suit from the first Dane in space.

The Children’s Museum
This is a museum where you can touch and play with everything! Go on a raid in the Viking ship, play like children in the backyards of the 1930s, or sit in the classroom and see what school was like for the great-grandparents of Danes. Board the cargo ship and settle down in the berth in the cabin, or go to the market in Pakistan and buy food in the bazaar. You can also make food in the old Medieval kitchen, or arm the castle ready for enemy attack.

Eat Nordic
With clear references to classic lunch and local dishes, restaurant Smör serves new interpretations of Danish food.
