The museum is very small and not worth the entry price in my opinion. If it was a free museum I would recommend as somewhere to go to get a taste of women's history quickly but since you have to pay I do not think you get a lot of information and you can easily see it in 30 minutes.

A lovely museum with a main focus on cultural history of women. Most about women in Denmark, but there are also other exciting exhibitions. There is one for kids too, they can play and learn. The museum's building has a long history, it was originally build as a town hall which gives a beautiful atmosphere in and out side. There... More

Denmark has a very interesting history of women's movements trough time , and this museum explains it very simply. Most of it is in English and Danish but not the temporary exhibitions , you can ask for a book in reception for the explanation in English. The first salon is an exposition of children and how they are defined by... More

I had a delicious lunch with a freind in the museum cafe, and then we went round the museum, wanting particularly to see the exhibition of wedding dresses. The meal was very good and the exhibition excellent.

This museum is interesting and does have some really interesting history of the women's movement, but there were some really scary bits. It's not deliberate by I found the exhibitions of bagged children's clothes, the dystopic children's bedroom, the incidental taxidermy and the wax works/mannequins a bit spooky. Although interesting it definitely isn't a must-see.

It is a very interesting museum, it has brought me into close contact with the danish history and culture. All the information is well explained, both in danish and in english, and there are schemes very useful to see the evolution of the society with respect to women. It didn't take me long to visit all the museum, for me... More

Came early on a Sunday morning on my own. Paid £3.50 to get in. Place looked and sounded empty. First room was empty minus a bookcase and a projector. Second room was empty. Next floor was plain scary. Red and green lit rooms with bags of clothes hanging from the ceiling like bodies. A room with a cot on the... More
