    The most special part of this museum are its Denmark's Prehistoric, Middle ages & Bronze age antiques collection. If you follow the signs then it will start from Prehistoric ery and will take you slowly slowly into the present. A person who loves history will surely love it !

    The National Museum is open from 10 a.m to 05.00 p.m from Tuesday to Sunday all the year ! Ticket for Adults cost 40 DKK but if you wish to save money then go there on WEDNESDAY which is free !!!

    The nationalmuseet, or national history museum, gives you a very good understanding of the history of Denmark. There are a lot of different rooms and halls dedicated to a certain part of the history. The clothing, religion, art, nature and much much more. There are so many rooms, you'd almost get lost.

    The museum is opened daily from 10 to 5. Tickets cost 40 Kroner. On wednesday admission to most rooms is free.

    Rich with Denmark's history and culture, you may want to reserve a large amount of time to visit this, perhaps as much as a half day. Even then you will not get to see everything inside. Be it either for the person wanting a taste of Denmark or someone yearning for a detailed understanding, you will find yourself with several large exhibits detailing how Denmark came to being.

    From prehistoric times to the present, you will have the opportunity to see tools from the Bronze Age, early Christian era rune stones, and preserved rooms from the Renaissance Era. You can also learn about Denmark today. The exhibits detail the wars between Denmark and Sweden, as well as more recent wars with Germany over the previous two centuries.

    For those seeking more exotic exhibits, there are good Egyptian and Asian permanent exhibits.

    This large museum contains four floors, and you are advised to concentrate your efforts only on certain exhibits.

    To be honest, I didn't particularly find Copenhagen's National Museum to be all that impressive, but, I did like this bull that I took a picture of.
