Host your Event at The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum

Whether you’re looking for a social or professional venue, The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum can provide a unique historical setting for your event.
For celebrations you can hire one of our impressive, historic halls. At The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum you can hire the Arsenal Hall and dine in Christian IV’s old arsenal from 1604, or host talks and film screenings in the atmospheric Armoury Hall on the first floor.

You can also hire the museum’s stunning courtyard, which has become famous in Copenhagen as a venue for major outdoor events, often held in conjunction with Søren Kierkegaard’s Square on the waterfront.

With its central location mid between the Danish Houses of parliament at Christiansborg Palace and The Royal Library, The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum is a unique oasis on the Copenhagen islet of Slotsholmen. The 160m-long building was erected by King Christian IV of Denmark from 1598-1604, and has from its inception been used to store arms and weapons. This is a history we’re proud to keep alive, and we also offer guided tours of the museum’s collections, as well as catering events with a historical theme. The museum is only hired for one event at a time, so you have the entire arsenal to yourself – no matter how many guests you have.
