The M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark is located at the UNESCO World Heritage site in Helsingor. The iconic museum is built around an old dry dock designed by the internationally renowned architecture company BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group).
The museum is placed below ground. The exhibitions are arranged in a continuous loop around the dry dock walls, making the dock the display’s centerpiece.
The museum has been nominated and has won several international awards since it opened in 2013, and has been called ”A cutting-edge cultural venue” by The New York Times and ”One of the eight greatest new museums” by BBC.
