Great design is everywhere you look in Denmark—in shops, in homes, in public spaces—and the creativity of its people has long been a source of national pride. This museum, located just around the corner from Amalienborg, was founded in 1890, many decades before midcentury modern became an international sensation. It looks at the history of Danish design over the centuries, taking in everything from furniture to fashion to textiles.
Where better to see and learn about design than the Danish design museum? This museum brings in wonderful traveling exhibits to supplement its permanent exhibits and has fun mixture of different design works from all over the world.
