Danish War Museum

At The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum, you can get wiser on war, defence and weapons technology in Danish military history from the 1500s until today.

The building which houses The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum, is built in 1604 by Christian IV and is still one of the biggest of its kind in the world.

Experience the Cannon hall, which is a magnificent architectural experience. After watching the many cannons used for defending Denmark’s boarders though time, you can discover the exhibition “The Remote War – a Danish soldier in Afghanistan”.

It is a 600 m2 big exhibition, which reproduces a Danish soldier camp in Afghanistan as real as possible and tells a Danish soldiers story from spending 6 months in Afghanistan.

On the 1st floor in the museum’s big rust chamber you can experience how wars were fought on the shore and on the water for the last 500 years.
