This is an excellent venue for a half day out. As well as covering all things on danish military history, there is a fantastic Afghanistan exhibition which is poignant and realistic and reflects the contibution that Denmark made. Definately worth a visit.

The museum itself, from downstairs, doesn't look terribly exciting however we have no grounds for complaint as we had the Copenhagen Card and so our entry was inclusive. That being said, once we got upstairs we found a huge amount of exhibits including military outfits,...More

Visited this museum expecting more. There are some interesting pieces, but everything is just laid out in one giant warehouse space. It’s still always cool to see cannons and big guns.
