Natural history museums have never been more important than they are today. Our planet is inhabited by millions of living species. However, today, a single species has the power to fundamentally change life on Earth. In order to find solutions to the major challenges the world is facing, it can only happen by changing locally, collaborating internationally, and sharing the knowledge and resources we collectively possess.

The Natural History Museum of Denmark is the national flagship museum for natural history. The vision of the Natural History Museum of Denmark is to strengthen the connection between people and nature. We aim to inspire, engage, and provide everyone with the opportunity to enjoy, understand, and care for the diversity of nature. In the coming years, we are completing a new large museum building. The new museum building will be located in the Botanical Gardens in the heart of Copenhagen and will house state-of-the-art laboratories, exceptional scientific collections, new exhibitions, and educational facilities. Our ambition is to change the perception and use of natural history museums in the coming years and thereby strengthen the connection between people and nature.

The museum has approximately 250 employees and a strong economy, and expects significant growth in the number of employees, commercial revenues, etc. The museum is divided into four departments: Research, Collections, Exhibition & Public Engagement, and Administration & Operations.
