The architecture is outstanding. An old dock and shipyard. The architect in Bjanke Ingels, maybe the most renowned living architect in Denmark. Built underground but still making the best use of daylight. Almost unnoticeable from the street level, right next to Kronborg Castle. Nevertheless, I...More

Entertaining museum, in particular for younger children; English translation available. It’s also from an architectural point of view interesting, the museum is build in a dock. Finally, if you watched the Netflix series The Rain the place will look familiar. Enjoy!

The maritime museum is at the site of an old dock and easily missed and overshadowed by Kronborg Castle. This museum is totally worth reserving an hour for maritime and/or history lovers. For me my favourite were the ancient navigation instruments and the future of...More
