the museum of the city

The Museum of Copenhagen was founded in 1891. From 1925 the collection was housed in the attics at city hall but in 1956 the museum was established in the fine 18th-century buildings of the Royal Danish Shooting Society in Vesterbrogade.

The museum closed that exhibition space in 2018 and is in the process of moving into buildings on Vester Voldgade - immediately south of the city hall.

It was recently announced that the museum will not reopen before February 2020.
