Rigsarkivet

© Ernst Tobisch

Slotsholmen is home to Rigsarkivet (Danish National Archives) which collects and preserves historical sources. Indulge in Danish history or explore some of the other museums on Slotsholmen.

Rigsarkivet is right next door to Christiansborg, and it's definitely worth a visit if you are a history enthusiast. Here you can find historical sources that are also available to the public. Go ahead and dive into the old history of Denmark.

Besides Rigsarkivet, you can explore the other cultural offers on Slotsholmen. See the pretty costumes at The Theatre Museum or the various weapons at The Royal Arsenal Museum.

You can also immerse yourself in sculptures at Thorvaldsen's Museum, or you can learn more about Jewish culture and history at the Danish Jewish Museum.

Free activities

Rigsarkivet also offers history en masse. Besides the historical sources, there are changing exhibitions, events and activities.

It is always free to visit Rigsarkivet, explore the exhibitions and take part in the various activities.
