Danish History for Children
The children's museum is closed for the season. We open again at Easter 2019.
The Museum of National History has a whole department especially for the children called "Danish History for Children" in the old wine cellar of the castle. Here you can explore the museum's exhibition for children "Christian the Fourth - child and king" that tells the story of this famous king of Denmark focusing on his childhood.
Here the youngest can write with feather and ink, colour drawings or dress up in one of the beautiful renaissance gowns for children especially made for The Museum of National History.
Throughout the year children aged 6 to 12 can discover the history of Denmark with the Museum's Picture Trail. With this in hand children can explore fascinating history paintings and distinguished portraits by solving fun clues.
If they complete the Picture Trail and show it to a member of staff in the Museum Shop, they will receive a small reward.
