Cost a fair bit to get in here - 110 DK including the additional fee for the Man Ray exhibition (though apparently you can visit the rest of the museum for free on a Tuesday) - but it was quite interesting: though after Man Ray I only had time to look round the ancient world exhibits.

The internal garden and main floor displays are incredible - well curated and maintained. Get there early to wander round on your own - it's amazing to wander through the Greek and Roman statues and imagine what it would have been like centuries before. I love the way they try and explain a little about the existence of the sculpture... More

This museum has an extensive range of art. I was fortunate to visit the museum while a temporary Man Ray exhibition was on, which was excellent. I also enjoyed the French Masters painting collection, and the Edgar Degas sculptures. There is a beautiful indoor garden in the middle on the museum which makes a nice place to sit and enjoy...

A fabulous collection from old egyptian mummy-stuff, greek and roman busts by the hundreds to 19th century french sculpturists like Rodin and impressionists as Monet and Gaugin. Just to name a few. A must for every tourist spending a couple of hours in Copenhagen.

They have a really great collection of art and historical artifacts. The sculptures really stole the show for me. If you are looking for a bit of culture then this would be a good place to start.

This museum is great if you like ancient art and sculpture. There are more Greek and Roman busts and statues than I have ever seen in one place, and there is a nice Egyptian section. There's also Danish art and sculpture. The museum is a manageable size and easy to navigate. In the center is a Winter Garden where you... More

Enjoyed the winter garden for its cool columns, and design. The gallery houses roman and Egyptian art. Some of the sculptures and Danish painters were a revelation. The café/restaurant overlooking the winter garden felt very grand.
