How many of the 8 Best Design Museums have you been to? 

Design Museum Danmark has been named as one of the top 8 in the world by Galerie Magazine.

The former Royal Frederik’s Hospital in Copenhagen now serves as the home of Design Museum Danmark. Scandinavia has a legendary reputation for design, so it comes as little surprise that Copenhagen, one of its design capitals, is home to an incredible design museum. Covering industrial design, furniture design, and handicrafts, the museum was founded in 1890 with the goal of inspiring both designers and consumers to create and seek out higher-quality goods.

In 1926 the museum moved into its current home, the former Royal Frederik’s Hospital, a rococo palace-like structure built in 1757. The collection highlights works by such famous Danish designers Arne Jacobsen and Kaare Klint (who helped convert the hospital into a museum), but it also has pieces from many time periods, from all across the world, that have served as inspiration to Danish designers.

The museum is home to the largest library in Scandinavia dedicated to design. You can read about the other 7 top design museums here in the article from Galerie Magazine.
