The copper staircase at Experimentarium in Hellerup
Adam Mørk


Hellerup, Denmark

A giant copper spiral staircase, designed to look like DNA, sets the tone for this science museum, which reopened in 2017 after an extensive renovation. Guests can now dive in to a virtual submarine safari, zoom in on the world of microorganisms or travel through the Tunnel of Senses to explore hearing, sight, touch and smell. And, of course, no visit is complete without creating your own bubbles in the Bubblearium. —Abigail Abrams
