What people are saying:

This is definitely one of those museums that you can spend an entire day and only scratch the surface. I can’t comment on cost, as the first time we visited it was free, but the second it didn’t seem to be. But there’s lots to see, and I feel like I learned a lot about the history of Copenhagen and the Danes.
