Roman Workshop

Bring the whole family for a trip back to the Roman Empire 2,000 years ago . Visit Glyptotek’s Roman Children’s Workshop where you may be disguised as a Roman emperor, fierce gladiator with large wounds or fine Roman lady. You can also play dice games from ancient times with your family or get a new Roman name.  Find treasure in the Roman Empire by solving a series of puzzles in the exhibition and win great prizes.

Storytelling at Christiansborg Slot

During the winter holidays in Copenhagen, children can visit the Queen’s beautiful library at Christiansborg. Here they will hear the story of Christian VII from 1776, his harsh childhood and his dreams of being allowed to be a completely normal child. The children will be taken into the queen’s beautiful chambers, where they can see pictures of Christian VII and his family. Christian VII is played by actor Flemming Bang.

Experimentarium City

The winter will get a little more action-influenced when Experimentarium City, with support from the Nordea Foundation, open its exhibition on winter sports. The 600 sqm interactive exhibits take the whole family out in the winter landscape and provide plenty of icy challenges. And there is plenty of opportunity to practise both known and lesser-known winter sports in the 25 activities offered on site.
