Fodor's Expert Review Experimentarium
At a former bottling plant, in the beachside town of Hellerup, more than 300 exhibitions are clustered in various "Discovery Islands," each exploring a different facet of science, technology, and natural phenomena. A dozen hands-on exhibits allow you to do things like blow giant soap bubbles, feel an earthquake, stir up magnetic goop, play ball on a jet stream, and gyrate to gyroscopes. The center also organizes interactive temporary exhibitions. Exhibit texts are in English. From downtown Copenhagen, take Bus 14 (from Rådhuspladsen) or 1A (from Kongens Nytorv or the Central Station). Alternatively, take the S-train to Svanemøllen Station, then walk north for 10 minutes.
