The Danish Maritime Museum found its place in a unique historic and spatial context

The Maritime Museum of Denmark is scored by National Geographic as ”one of 10 museums to travel to for their stunning structures”.

The Museum tells the story of Denmark as one of the world’s biggest seafaring nations from the 15th century until today. The 600 years of maritime history goes hand to hand with a unique architecture and design, as it is built below ground around an old dry dock in front of Kronborg Castle (known as Hamlet's Castle). In the Museum are uneven floors and irregular angles giving you the experience of being on board a real ship.

As a visitor you’ll walk through the old dry dock discovering the maritime world and getting to know maritime history through the life of the sailor and others living life at sea. Intelligent, interactive exhibitions, film projections and games will give you an extraordinary experience.
