A wild ride through natural history

At the Natural History Museum of Denmark, you will find exhibitions in a league of their own.

In the museum’s Mineral Hall, the extensive display includes Baltic amber, precious gems, and silver from Kongsberg.

An annual recurring highlight is the famous photo exhibition Wildlife Photographer of the Year, presenting the 100 very best photos taken of the natural world that year. And from May 2022, you can come face to face with your past in a critically acclaimed exhibition on the Neanderthals – our closest extinct relatives. The museum also offers plenty of activities for children.
