New underground museum showcases Danish maritime history

Danish architect BIG  has completed an underground maritime musuem that loops around an old dry dock in the city of Helsingør,

A courtyard is at the centre of the new museum, along with a series of bridges that cut into the 60-year-old walls.

Located in the surrounds of Kronborg Castle, which dates back to the 15th century, the Danish Maritime Museum forms part of the Kulturhavn Kronborg initiative – an effort to bring cultural attractions to Helsingør’s harbour.

The museum’s underground galleries present the story of Denmark’s maritime history up to the present day, contained within a two-storey rectangular structure that encases the dry dock
