Spent two hours going through the museum and could have spent two more. The amount of information on the history of danish wars was incredible and fascinating for someone unfamiliar with their history. The special exhibit on the Danish troops stationed in Afghanistan was excellent,...More

Whilst I enjoyed my visit, I think I would have enjoyed it more had the lay-out of the exhibitions been easier to understand. I started by making my way through the naval history exhibition, which I found very interesting. However, I then should have turned...More

Out of three museums we visited, this one was by far the most interesting. The exhibition about the afganistan war was really unique.

Although it is not so large, they have a wonderful collection of exhibits there. The replica of a NATO station in Afghanistan was so realistic and educational. Highly recommended.

The Arsenal is a bit hidden, near Christiansborg. We asked at the stables how to find it. It’s definitely worth finding. It is very impressive to walk in and see thousands of cannons. Be sure to walk through the Afghanistan display also on the first...More

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
