The Cathedral Museum, Copenhagen

4.4
#42 of 57 in Museums in Copenhagen
Take a look behind the scenes of one of Copenhagen's most enduring symbols at The Cathedral Museum. Since its construction in the 12th century, the Church of Our Lady has been intertwined with the history of the city itself--most notably as the site of several Danish royal weddings and coronations. Through the ages, the cathedral has seen several major renovations, and the museum in the former crypt tells the story of the changes it's endured through a collection of decorative artifacts as well as the remains of the original structure. A visit to the ruins gives you a chance to go to the street level of medieval Copenhagen. As the cathedral remains an active place of worship, tours are not available during services.

  • Copenhagen, Denmark, a town and country must to go of course gone one of the Central and modern museum visit

  • The museum itself in Copenhagen Cathedral is very small and not interesting. You can draw the attention of only a few samples of the statue of Christ, which became his main image for Mormons. After the exposition stands down in the Dungeon, where you can see the ruins of the original church, related to the 14th century.
