In the bustle of Danish design

With a unique location in Copenhagen’s historic centre, near tourist attractions, the harbour, design companies and galleries, Designmuseum Danmark is a working archive and a symbol of Denmark as a design destination. The museum is a modern and active place, where school groups, families with children and a large international audience come together to take part in the museum’s many events. There are extensive collections of furniture, silver, ceramics, fashion, textiles and digital design from across the Western world from the late Middle Ages to the modern era.

The museum was founded in 1890 by the Confederation of Danish Industries in Copenhagen and the Ny Carlsberg Museumslegat. It was first opened to the public in 1895 in a building on what is now H.C. Andersens Boulevard, before being moved to its current location, which is the former Royal Frederik hospital. The museum underwent a comprehensive renovation of the interior in 2022.
