Architect: BIG, Bjarke Ingels Group
M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark is designed by the architecture company BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group). The museum is located under ground around the old dry dock of Helsingør Shipyard. BIG has preserved the old dock as an historical, industrial monument, leaving it open for outdoor exhibitions and events.
The museum is accessed via bridges spanning the dock. The floors in the exhibition area slope gently downwards, so visitors can move around the building as they descend in a spiral.
