Went to this interesting and very kids friendly museum, Orlogsmuseet, The Royal Danish Naval Museum at Overgaden Oven Vandet 58, at Christianshavn. Easy to find, walking distance from Strøget, a few minutes walk from the Metro at Chrisitanshavns Torv, or jump off the canal boats, close to Christiania (not fond of the place but have noticed that tourists are, I figure if they charged the tourist 20 Dkr to enter, they could soon finance some long needed remodelling, but I guess that’s not the deal there) in a cozy neighbourhood, plenty to look at. On a rainy day or if your toddlers need to run loose or you simply just find naval models extremely amusing and amazing, then this is definitely the place to go! Lots of floor space, few visitors, lots of amazing naval models, actually one of the world’s finest collection, a separate children’s museum designed for play, experience a submarine, and much more. Plenty of space to take the stroller through the museum and a lift to get up and down to the different exhibition floors. Great place. And if you visit on a Wednesday it’s even for free. Only minus, they didn’t have a changing mat for baby even if the sign on the restroom said so. Well, we are in a high spirited mood today, so the overall rating for kids- and other users- friendliness is 4 pirate skulls:
