The Danish Museum of Science and Technology in Elsinore has an impressive collection of steam engines, inventions, electric appliances, bicycles, cars, and airplanes. Located in a former iron foundry from the 1960s, the museum has since been extended to 26,000 square feet (8,000 square meters). The big halls, which take about 2-3 hours to explore, are filled with the development of technology, science, and industry. The museum has a complete pewter workshop built inside of it, and the extensive aviation department has complete, former military aircraft.
All forms of transport are documented at the Danish Museum of Science and Technology, so if you even remotely like old cars, airplanes, trains, or busses, this museum is a must-visit! There are a wide variety of exhibits, many of which are interactive — you can even walk through and sit inside of a number of the aircraft.
Insider’s Tip: The exhibition halls inside the museum are not heated, so be sure to dress for the outside temperature. (You can easily warm up in the cafe if you get chilly during the winter months.)
The museum is about a 45 minute drive from Copenhagen. To get there by bus, take bus 802 at Helsingør Station and ask the driver to stop outside ‘Teknisk Museum’ at Fabriksvej.
