From Past to Present

Unusually for a major national museum, both the permanent collection and the special exhibitions at the National Museum of Denmark are free of charge to visitors. That means you have no excuse not to go. It's a treasure house of fascinating artifacts, housed in a rather barracks-like 18th century royal palace in the heart of Copenhagen. The collection has sections devoted to world pre-history and classical times. The chronological Danish section runs from Stone Age artifacts to the Welfare State, via a Victorian house. There's even a hash stall from Christiana which you may want to compare with the real thing.
