A New Building for the Natural History Museum

One of the largest museum constructions in Denmark in recent times is gaining momentum. The new building of the Natural History Museum of Denmark will be located in a corner of the Botanical Garden in the heart of Copenhagen., The new building combines the Zoological Museum at Østerbro and the museum building on Øster Voldgade 5-7 (the former Geological Museum) into a top-class museum.

The museum's collections contain 14 million natural history objects collected worldwide over almost 400 years. When the new museum building opens its doors to the public in 2024, it will be in a new beautiful setting, where the story of the origin and spread of life can really unfold.

Vejdirektoratet (the Danish Road Directorate) acts as the developer and you can read more here (in Danish).
