The Royal Danish Collection is a state recognized museum for cultural history. Our area of responsibility is the Danish history from Christian 4. to the present, seen through paintings, furniture, and other items with relation to the Danish Royal Family. The Royal Danish Collection comprises of three exhibition venues: Rosenborg Castle, the Amalienborg Museum and Koldinghus.

Our research focuses on the relationship between the historical and the present, before and now, providing new understandings and perspectives on history and society. We are always aiming for a better understanding of:

  • Processes of change and social structures
  • Environment, humanity, culture, and identity
  • Craftmanship, materiality and technology

Our research aims to conserve our cultural heritage and provide new knowledge and perspectives and is being carried out by conservations specialists, educators, and curators. Research activities are based on our own as well as external collections, archives, libraries, and other types of sources, which can shed light on the above themes. The museum communicates its research results to other research environments as well as to the public. The Royal Danish Collection collaborates continuously with other state and state recognized museums, makes our collection and documentation available for other research communities and guest researchers and takes part in relevant academic networks and research collaborations.
