What kind of city is Copenhagen, and who are the Copenhageners? Begin your visit at the Museum of Copenhagen, located in a beautiful, historical building right behind City Hall.

From the trading and crafts of the Vikings, 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 – then you’ll be all set to explore Copenhagen on your own!

Experience a well-worn bone comb from the Viking Age, the skeleton of a warrior from the Middle Ages that has survived the blows of swords and axes, and an elegant sedan from the 1700s, the taxi of the day for high-class Copenhageners. And of course, we have an early edition of Copenhageners’ favourite means of transport, a cycle – made of wood!
