Last day in Denmark... the museum was fine. The kids enjoyed it and there were exhibits suitable for everyone. I thought it was ok. No more, no less.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
