Welcome to Danish Museum of Science & Technology
A museum for the whole family. From the first childlike fascination with technology and machines, through the contemporary critical view of technology and everyday life, to the nerdy insight into mechanics and function. At the museum you can explore a breathtaking collection and unique narratives, from the first technical inventions to the notion of what may await in the future.
Thousands of surprises
No matter your age and prior understanding, you can relate to and be amazed by the thousands of objects at our museum such as: Denmark's first car, its first airplane, computer, typewriter and the space capsule which sent the first Dane into space. An extensive collection of everyday technology shows radios, TV sets, Carmen curlers, washing machines and other technical aids that have found their way into our homes.
The museum is more than 100 years old and despite some of the museum's objects are even older, the stories continue to develop and marvel. From computers that fill half a house to the small smart phone in your pocket that soon will be laughable slow. The world of technology is in constant motion and at the Danish Museum of Science & Technology you can come along on the tour.
