A couple of months ago, I visited Denmark, known as a leading light in the world of interior design. I was attending The Hive, a blog conference also attended by many interior design bloggers. How could I not pay a visit to the Design Museum Danmark? Founded in 1890, it is the largest museum in Denmark for not only Danish but also international design e.g. from Germany, France and China, with a focus on the significance these collections for the development on nordic design. My visit […]

Just in time for today’s public holiday and long weekend here in Germany, the weather has once again turned Autumnal, so I’ve been enjoying looking through photographs from my recent trip to Copenhagen and remembering the beautiful summer sunshine we had there. The Botanical Garden in Copenhagen, along with the Botanical Museum and Library, the Geological Museum and the Zoological Museum, is part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen. Home to about 11,000 species, the historic garden is home […]

As far as unusual exhibition spaces go, Cisternerne – the only dripstone cave in Denmark – underneath Frederiksberg’s Søndermarken Park by Copenhagen has to be the most unusual I’ve ever visited. Once a subterranean reservoir providing the Danish capital with drinking water (it covers a space of 4,320 square metres and at full capacity can hold 16 millions litres of water!), ‘The Cisterns’ was turned in to an exhibition space in the mid 1990s and was home to a museum of modern glass art from […]

There’s a proverb that says, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’. Well, the way to a hungry family’s heart, when visiting a museum, is through a good museum café. I’ve previously written about our wonderful experience visiting the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, but I didn’t dwell much on their café then. Let me remedy that. The café at the Statens Museum for Kunst is a bright, light-filled space on the lower level, overlooking the park outside. We grabbed a […]

{Denmark} A Worker’s Life at the Arbejdermuseet

As I have mentioned before, we spent last Christmas in Copenhagen and fell in love with some of its fantastically family-friendly museums. One of those I have not yet written about, is the Arbejdermuseet or in English ‘Worker’s Museum’. It was opened in the early 1980s by the trade unions and is housed in the union movement’s old village hall which dates back to the 1870s. The main focus of the museum is to show what everyday life for Copenhagen workers was like over the […]

I have a thing for postal museums. The Smithsonian National Postal Museum is not only my favourite museum in Washington, D.C. but also one of my favourite museums world wide. So ever since I heard about the Post & Tele Museum in Copenhagen, I knew I just had to visit it! Having heard from my friend Mel, who lives in Copenhagen, that it is also a great museum to visit with kids, it was top of our list for our family holiday. After all, Postman Pat […]
