Built underground in a dry ship dock, the museum was very modern and just seeing its beautiful architecture was worth a visit for me. The exhibits were mostly about the history of shipping and my kids were intrigued by various educational video games in the...More

This museum is built around an old dry dock and is actually below ground level. It is modern with many interactive displays and traces Denmark's maritime history. You can learn about the lives of sailors (and their families), global trade (and port life), navigation and...More

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

A great way to experience the life at sea in the old days. Plenty of thing for the kids to do. Well worth a visit.

We visited as it’s right next to the castle we came out from Copenhagen to visit and it was free on our Copenhagen card. The design and location of the museum in an old dry dock is excellent, very well done and so unusual.

I saw somewhat good review encouraging to visit as it was a rather new facility and very close to Kronborg castle. The displays were mainly about sailor life in history. We were not quite touched by the exhibits. However, the entrance seemed interesting.

I was not sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. We spent an hour and a half and could have spent so much longer.
