Below ground

A masterpiece of modern architecture when a new construction blends perfectly into the landscape. When you look from the Culture Yard towards medieval Kronborg castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the whereabouts of the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark is hidden from the visual eye below ground.

Walking into a museum

It was a beautiful morning in Elsinore so I took a walk to explore the new Danish national maritime museum. It opened in 2013 and has won many awards for its architecture and exhibitions.

What a perfect day to explore Danish world class architecture created by Bjarke Ingels group. The cafe is situated at the opposite end of building and offers good kitchen, refreshments and coffees. On a sunny days you can take your food and drinks outside.

Strolling in a drydock

It does not happen often that people have a chance to make a natural connection between architecture and maritime history. It's quite an amazing feeling to walk inside a drydock.

Buoy

What a great starting point of a maritime exhibition. A buoy is a floating device that can have many purposes. Usually, those are anchored in the sea to collect data amongst others functions.

Documents of construction

For any visitor, it's very informative to get a glimpse of the challenges of how the drydock was revamped and constructed to become an exhibition building.
