Going to visit some family in Copenhagen, anything that I need or should see that is military history or wargaming related? Any miniatures shops? Anything non-gaming related that I should do? Thanks!

There's a huge shop that has games, comics, collectable figures, Miniatures, supplies, paints. I just don't remember the name. They had two store fronts. It may be this Faraos Cigarer – Merchandise. It was on the way to a famous cake shop.

Ride a bike, there's a star fort near the little mermaid. I think it's actually the Defense Ministry but you can walk around it.

A quick report here link

Make sure to see the tojhusmuseet. Denmark's military history museum very close to the national history museum.

It is Faraos Cigar in downtown Copenhagen.

Second what Mr Brooks says – great museum and well worth a visit. there is also a small but very good little museum devoted to the Royal Guards actually in the Guards barracks in the centre. Getting in can be a bit of a problem – especially if they are getting ready for Guard mounting – but well worth the try…

It's been a while since I was there but the Resistance Museum is a good one and near the palace there is a military museum which has weapons thru the ages.

The main museum (cant remember the name) has a fantastic collection of bog bodies and Viking era relics. The Gundestrap Cauldron is also there which IMHO is one of the wonders of the ancient world. If you have any interest in ancients or early medieval/Viking don't miss it.

In addition to the fort and th museums (all of which are excellent) go and visit the royal stables if you like cavalry. You can walk right into the stables (which are marvellous) and pet the horses if you are so inclined :)

The resistance museum is closed at the moment. The navymuseum is at the tøjhusmusum. The old naval base is open. The 1700 fortress kastellet is open and free.
