The National Museum of Denmark lets you get to grips with the highlights of Danish history. Here you will find iconic treasures that tell the story of Denmark through the ages. You will see the young Egtved Girl from the Bronze Age, a worshipper of the sun. Stand before ancient runestones carrying messages from long ago. And you will find the axe used to decapitate Struensee, the main protagonist of what is probably Denmark’s most dramatic love affair ever.

Join the many guided tours which allow you to walk through 11,000 years of dramatic history in a short while. You can also explore the very recent history of Denmark from 2000–17 through exhibits such as a bullet-riddled door from the 2015 terrorist attack and Andreas Mogensen’s spacesuit.
