"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."
