The Museum of National History
Since 1878, Frederiksborg Castle has housed the Museum of National History. Here, 500 years of Danish history is illustrated through portraits, paintings, furniture, sculptures and decorative art. Guests can encounter people and events which have shaped Denmark and Danish history from the Middle Ages to the 21st century.
For instance, at the museum you can find the portraits of Johan Friedrich Struensee and Queen Caroline Mathilde by artist Jens Juel, or wonder at paintings by artists Karel van Mander, Wilhelm Marstrand, P. S. Krøyer, Niels Strøbæk, and many more.
The permanent exhibition gives guests an insight into the castle, which was previously closed to the public. Here, you can see original decorations and sculptures from before the fire in 1859.
