The Arnamagnĉan Institute
Scholars are the main audience for this collection of historic manuscripts from Scandinavia and Continental Europe. The institute also has a 12,000-volume reference library. 

Botanical Garden & Museum
A Royal Decree led to the establishment of Copenhagen's botanical garden and museum more than 400 years ago. Some of the collections date back to the 1700s, when Danish botanists roamed the Earth in search of unusual specimens.

Museum of Copenhagen
Eight centuries of Copenhagen history are illustrated via models and other exhibits that show everything from building models to a cross-section of modern underground Copenhagen and an archaelogical excavation.

Design Museum Denmark
Royal Copenhagen porcelain, Danish furniture and industrial design, glass, textiles, and East Asian art among the items on display here.

Old Denmark - Open-Air Museum
The Frilandsmuseet, which occupies 86 acres or 35 hectares in Copenhagen's suburbs, has more than 50 farms, mills, and houses from all over Denmark, the Faroe Islands, and former Danish provinces in Sweden and Germany. It's one of the world's largest "living history" museums, and it appeals to visitors of all ages.

Geological Museum
See minerals, rocks, fossils, meteorites, exhibits related to geological processes, and antique scientific instruments at the University of Copenhagen.

Kroppedal Museum
This museum of astronomy, modern history, and archaelogy is located outside the city, but you can get there by S-train and bus.
