Great collection of art, there is even Bosch and Bruegel:) Plenty of adorable Cranach, some impressionists. Actually, pleasantly surprised about the collection. I have missed audio guide, though there is some guides inside. Very friendly staff!

The National Gallery of Denmark is expansive in its size and collection. One can find art from many eras and styles i.e. Renaissance and earlier to modern and contemporary. If you don't like one style or era, keep going. This is a great way to spend a cold or rainy day. We spent a few later afternoon hours, and there... More

The National Gallery of Denmark was a true revelation to me and I loved to visit it when I lived in Copenhagen some 20+ yrs ago. The building is such a beautiful piece of architecture, and the interior is so enjoyable. Do not pass this one if you are in Copenhagen and if you like visiting museums.

Visited the museum to see the exhibition on the influence of Japanese art on the European and in particular nordic artists of 19th -20th centuries. Museum building itself incl. the modern addition from 1998 is beautiful, the particular exhibition so -so. Well organized but nothing too surprising

No longer free but still worth seeing. In addition to temporary exhibits, there is (as expected) a wonderful, comprehensive collection of Danish artists but also a good sampling of International artists of renown.

If you like art museums, we, as living here, can recommend this one i Copenhagen. The best ones in town, if you are into classical art, are: this one, Glyptoteket and Thorvaldsens Museum.

You must definitely visit National Gallery of Denmark, which is the royal art collection. Pay attention the European Art Collection: e.g. Mantegna, Hals, Modigliani.

This has a fine range of painting; Nordic, French and European, plus visiting exhibitions (Japanese art and its influences when we visited). My wife is still kicking herself having missed the three Picasso paintings in the French section. I know Picasso was Spanish, but most of his work was produced in France. The safe were great and most helpful.

There are so many things to see at the SMK that it is a bit exhausting. It's worth every minute of your time, though. There are plenty of diverse works of art there - Danish masters, great French collection with works of Matisse and Modigliani, impressive sculptures and a huge modern art section. Put your comfortable shoes on and immerse... More
