2 million horsepower were required to send Andreas Mogensen into space. After 10 weightless days, he returned to Earth at 28,000 km per hour! It doesn’t get much bigger than that. Now you can join his journey into space, by visiting the exhibition 10 DAYS IN SPACE.


Games can transport us into incredible worlds, that keep us engrossed for hours at a time, and provides a break from the trivialities of everyday life. GAMER gives you the chance to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane with old game consoles and iconic arcade machines from the 70’s and 80’s. Duel your friends and family in old classics like Space Invaders! and Pac-Man.


The exhibition is about communication and how technological objects influence the way we socialize with each other. The exhibition is centered on an everyday object we all know, namely the smartphone. By exploring the history of the smartphone, you will gain insight into the different developments and innovations that has made the invention of the smartphone possible.

Freedom on two wheels

The exhibition gives a new perspective on an everyday technology most of us takes for granted. The bike. Experience the evolution of the bike, and see all the funny-looking, cool, and silly bikes from the last 200 years. The oldest one is a running bike from 1819 and the newest was used by the Danish national track team for men, when they won gold in the World Championship in 2020.

Black energy & green hope

The exhibition travels through the history of energy production and usage and it has a view on the future landscapes of green energy. The exhibition tells the story of how coal saved the Danish forests, how electricity revolutionized our homes, and it takes you all the way to today where data usage and streaming affects the Earths’ climate.

INVENTIONS – passion and dreams

The exhibition explores some of the inventions that helped create the world as we know it today. Some have radically changed the world, some have laid the cornerstone to Danish industry adventures, while others never made it past a prototype.

The history of Denmark in miniature

The model railway is made through a collaboration between the museum and a group of volunteers, who have now been working on the model for ten years. The build has now come so far that the Danish industrial history from 1847 up to 1960 can be displayed. You can, among other things, see Denmark’s first railway between Copenhagen and Roskilde, and a helicopter experiment by the Danish inventor Ellehammer.

On land and into the air

Our unique collection of cars represents the Danish history of motor vehicles. For instance, you can experience the Hammel Car from 1888, the first automobile of the Royal Danish Family and a Volkswagen Beetle from 1948. The museum also houses a large collection of planes. There are old propeller planes, helicopters, gliders, private aircrafts, passenger planes and many former planes of Defence Command Denmark.

FLYING HIGH – from fantasy to real planes

In the exhibition, the fantastic story about the invention and breakthrough of a new technology is told. From the very first myths and dreams about aviation to the commercial airliners that became a reality in the interwar period. In 1910, it was completely different. Back then, aviation was new and exciting, and the Danes loved to look at young daredevils who risked their lives in tenuous planes of wood and linen with an unstable engine.

J.C.H. Ellehammer

Jacob Christian Hansen Ellehammer (1871-1946) is Denmark’s most famous inventor. He was granted 59 Danish patents and worked with a range of different things such as aviation, engines, boats for the amusement park Tivoli, firefighting and entertainment devices. Some of Ellehammer’s inventions became commercial successes, others were only an idea on a piece of paper.

Industry: from crafts to robots

The exhibition shows some of the decisive moments in Denmark’s development as an industrial society: From the time where everything was made by craftsmen, through the early industrialization and the post-war period, till the contemporary automation where robots play a huge role.
