It is not possible to park right next to the museum due to the terrorist security of Slotsholmen.

However, we can recommend parking at BLOX og Slotsholmsgade.

Both areas are within walking distance of the museum.



On foot

If you come from Christiansborg, go through the Royal Library's garden. You will find the entrance to the garden opposite the main staircase to the Folketinget. The museum is on the left in the garden.

If you are walking from Christiansbrygge, walk around the old building of the Royal Library, which faces the Library Garden. The museum is located next to the old main entrance to the Royal Library.

By bus and metro

Bus lines 2A, 23, 26, 27, 31 and 37 all stop nearby.

Harbor buses 901 and 902 stop right by Den Sorte Diamant.

The administration is in our office building "the fish". This is definitely where you should go if you have donations or need to meet with us. 

Practical information

Yes, you are welcome to take a small pram with you around the exhibitions. The museum's floors and walls are crooked and whimsical, so that larger prams can be placed in the museum shop.

The association, God Adgang, has visited and describes the experience as a wheelchair user:

The Danish Jewish Museum is a small museum designed by the world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind. The house is therefore in itself an experience with crooked floors and crooked interrupted walls. One must be prepared for the fact that the house itself contains challenges for accessibility for both wheelchair users and for people with reduced vision/blind people. In addition to the exhibition, there is a small museum shop which also functions as a school service. Accessibility is generally good - also for wheelchair users, although due to a few details, which you can read more about below, we have not given all marks.

In general, you are not allowed to bring your dog, but service dogs are more than welcome - and of course they get in for free :)

No, you are not allowed to bring your ice cream inside, but fortunately the museum is located in the beautiful Library Garden, where you can finish eating your ice cream.

Yes, you are welcome to take your to-go coffee in if it has a lid. Unfortunately, all liquids without lids may not be brought with you. 

In the museum shop you can buy hot coffee, ice-cold bottled water and some sweets. 

It is a great advantage to buy the ticket from home, but of course you can also buy one from us. That way, there will be less queues and you can quickly enter the museum. You simply need to scan your ticket at the entrance, after which you will receive a sticker which must be visible on your clothing for the duration of your visit.

The ticket must be brought either in print or digitally. 

As a starting point, all bags must be locked in the wardrobes in the entrance hall. 

Personal bags must be smaller than 20*13,5 cm if you want to take them around the exhibition.
