Marvel at beautiful minerals, touch a 16-ton meteorite from outer space, and explore the world of nature in the changing exhibitions at Denmark’s national museum of natural history.

Each year, the Natural History Museum of Denmark is a venue for the critically acclaimed Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, featuring the 100 best photos selected from more than 50,000 submissions worldwide. Explore some of the world’s greatest habitats, see fascinating animal behavior and get to know extraordinary species. Go deeper and discover the surprising – and often challenging – stories behind the images during a time of environmental crisis. See for the exhibition period.

Also, do not miss the chance to get to know your nearest extinct relatives in the special exhibition Neanderthal which is on display from 29 April 2022 to 19 February 2023. Here, you can meet the mammoth Manse and other Ice Age animals and get creative in the family workshop on Ice Age people.

The museum is part of Copenhagen’s green museum district, Parkmuseerne, and is beautifully situated in the corner of the Botanical Garden, near Nørreport Station. Recharge in the museum café with a view of the romantic garden and go on to explore Denmark’s collection of rare plants from around the globe.
