Design Museum Danmark

Design Museum Danmark is housed in one of Copenhagen’s finest Rococo buildings, which tells a compelling story in its own right about the quality of Danish design.

The advent of Covid-19 has obliged Design Museum Danmark to bring forward a comprehensive and thoroughgoing renovation. The museum will therefore be closed to the public until the beginning of 2022.

The museum was founded in 1890, when Denmark’s industrial enterprises were celebrating the pre-eminence of their Sponsored content products. In the course of the 20th century, Danish design – especially furniture design – achieved worldwide renown.

Though the ultimate reopening of the museum is naturally something to look forward to, you can visit the museum’s digital universe in the meantime. Take a virtual tour of the museum, listen to the podcasts, and be inspired regarding how to build your own creative workshop at home.
