Museums fit for a day trip

Copenhagen has a lot of incredible museums, but when it comes to cultural and historical heritage, catching a train or car and heading on a day trip out of the city will be well worth your effort. 

Whether you're dying to know more about our past as Vikings or you have a thing for modern art, the museums surrounding Copenhagen can deliver. Learn more about our royal history or explore our maritime traditions in the architectural masterpiece that is M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark.

You should also check out Copenhagen's best museums.
