Free and easily available wardrobe cabinets, exhibitions and exhibitions with Danish and English captions, well presented and easy to follow. Interesting section dedicated to the history of the country from the 1600s to the present day. The section dedicated to the Vikings is very interesting. About 15 euros the entrance price. To give us at least 4 hours.

The highlight of this museum is definitely the Viking exhibit. I would highly recommend the guided tour "Meet the Vikings" that runs everyday for a small additional fee. My guide was studying viking history at university and she was so knowledgeable and explained everything in much greater detail. Nothing else in the museum really caught my interest and I found myself having to re-read the informational plaques a few times because my mind kept wandering. However, the viking exhibit is well worth the entrance fee and I would spend my entire time there.
Interesting objects telling the story of the land. Outstanding large ethnography collections from other countries. Impressing exhibition of toys. Beautiful precious things and interiors from old times. And it's really big, you can go through at one time, but better to have several visits. There're new technologies used in some exhibitions, so it's more exciting to see them. I was there mostly because of the Vikings age. There's not so much, as I thought, but I saw so many interesting and beautiful things from other times and cultures, that I wasn't disappointed at all. It's a really good place for curious people.
