Directions to Danish Museum of Art and Design
The Danish Museum of Art & Design is one of Scandinavia’s best collections of Danish and international design, decorative and applied arts. The museum is located only a short walk from Amalienborg Palace close to Copenhagen´s center. The collections, library and archives of the museum constitute an indispensable resource for the study of Denmark's rich design history.
The Danish Museum of Art & Design showcases contemporary developments within industrial design, decorative and applied arts. It also, of course, curates examples of important works from further back in Danish history. The museum researches into the history of art and design, starting with the museum’s own collections, and presents the results to the visitors of the museum in the forms of publications, papers, and exhibitions.
The collections include decorative and applied arts and industrial design from the Western World, dating back to the Late Middle Ages and all the way up to the present day. The collection also takes in works from China and Japan, and ranges from prehistoric to modern times.
As we all know, Denmark's design sense has become world famous in the 20th century and as such, the museum exhibits a lot of pieces from that period.
There is an on-site cafe that is furnished with classic Danish furniture by Hans J. Wegner and Poul Kjærholm, offering light meals, freshly baked breads and drinks. In the summer you can enjoy your refreshments outside in the tranquil museum garden.
The museum offers guided tours in Danish and English, which should be booked in advance.
