M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark

Visit a unique and prizewinning underground museum

This unique experience begins even before you enter the museum. Follow the sloping bridge down into the former dry dock between Kronborg Castle and The Culture Yard and enter a fabulous underground museum, designed by the world-renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) architects.

Dramatic exhibition design
Here you will meet a colorful world of numerous exhibitions telling the story of Denmark, as one of the leading maritime nations both past and present. The museum’s rich collections are evocatively and dramatically exhibited with large video projections on the architecture. Here you can see, listen and interact as you discover the maritime world.

Prizewinning architecture
M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark is one of the main reasons why Elsinore was on the New York Times list of 52 places to go in 2014. Since the opening 5 October 2013 the museum has been awarded with several architecture- and design prizes, read more mfs.dk/en
