This museum used to house one of the largest colections of small firearms. When visiting the museum for the first time i spent hours here. Regretfully this enourmous collection has been closed for the public. Will not visit again.

We didn't plan to visit this museum, but ended up spending more time that in any other museum. My kids love military history and there is plenty to see here.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
