The Danes have a knack for design as this museum attests to, with three floors documenting their excellence in product and industrial design. There’s seemingly no design challenge too small or big to be taken on by the Danes and for which an aesthetically pleasing and minimalist solution can’t be produced.

In addition to its permanent showcase of Danish design classics from phones and stereos to chairs and kitchen utensils, the museum hosts exhibitions on both Danish and international design, and the building also houses a shop, conference centre and a well fine café. Admittedly, you may see little that you wouldn’t come across on a shopping trip to Illums Bolighus, but it is immensely educational and a trip to a museum does sound that much more brainy.
