"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 was founded in 1890 by the Confederation of Danish Industries in Copenhagen and the Ny Carlsberg Museumslegat. It opened to the public in 1895 in a new building on what is now H.C. Andersens Boulevard, and moved in 1926 to its current location, a former hospital.
Today, the museum is a modern and active place, where families with children, students, school groups and a large international audience come together to be part of the museum’s many events."
Furniture, silver, ceramics, fashion, textiles and digital design: the museum's extensive collections include art, crafts and industrial design from all over the western world from the late middle ages to today. Particularly impressive are the fashion and textile, furniture and Japanese crafts collections.
