Perhaps you have done all the outdoor activities you wanted or it is a rainy day but still want to explore the city? Don’t worry, there are plenty of things to do indoor in Copenhagen. Now, what are the best ones to do with your kids?
BabyBreaks has done the hard work for you, and researched the Top 5 Best Child-Friendly Indoor activities to do in Copenhagen.
1. National Aquarium Denmark
Only eight kilometres from the Copenhagen City Hall Square, “Den Blå Planet” (the Blue Planet) is Northern Europe’s largest aquarium. With its unique whirlpool-shape, it offers a unique experience for the whole family having water on all sides giving the impression to be directly in the sea. But if being surrounded by water gets overwhelming, you also have the choice to experience the aquarium from above the water line.
Opening Hours: Mondays: 10 – 21; Tuesday – Sunday: 10 – 17
World class science center on 3 indoor floors with 18 interactive exhibitions about science and technology, an interactive rooftop, science shows and a restaurant. Experimentarium believes that “knowledge and curiosity come alive with a hands-on approach”. It is showing how science can be fun whilst having fun!

Louisiana is the amazing Museum of Art Modern Art of Copenhagen, and has its own three-story Children’s wing called Louisiana Børnehus.
Here they offer open workshops daily where children aged 4 to 16 can paint, draw, sculpt – and explore artists’ working methods and expressions.
All activities for children are based on the museum’s current exhibitions and Louisiana’s Collection.
Bear in mind it is located 25 miles of the City but children up to 18 years old benefit from free entry.

4. National Children’s Museum
Set in the National Museum, there are no “Do no touch” signs in the children’s area which offers interactive exhibitions and displays to bring history to life.
The kids will love to be available to dress up as 19th-century school children or ride on a replica Viking ship and defend a medieval castle.
If you take them to the rest of the museum, watch out for the “Boredom button”, designed to bring the museum to life.
Good to know: The museum restaurant, Smör, offers child-friendly food and delicious pastries.
Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10-17 (Closed on Mondays)
July and August, Monday – Sunday 10-17
5. LEGO Store
Opened in 2010 in the center of Copenhagen, this is the Flagship store for the brick brand. It is not a massively big store, but it will still be heaven for your little (and less little…) LEGO lovers.
Arranged in three main parts, you’ll find the interactive area at the the centre of the shop which gives you and your kids a chance to build and create with LEGO products.
There are also some sets here that are exclusive to the Copenhagen store and cannot be found anywhere else. It will surely be hard to resist!
