Beautiful building full of germs of art - and moreover free admission on Sunday(which we did not know)! We spent about half a day in there but you might need 2 or 3 days to discover all the treasures inside. If you are interested in ancient sculptures or paintings by the most famous Impressionists, you will find it there. When... More

I had such a pleasant surprise going to this place. I didn't really do any research about things to do in Copenhagen but this place was amazing. On Sunday it's free! Seeing Rodin's "The Thinker" was brilliant and the whole gallery is really beautiful. I only wish I had more time to spend there. Must see in Copenhagen.

Lovely museum. Quiet and low key but filled with real quality art. The roman pieces from Palmyra are the best in existence and even more precious given the recent looting of the ruins and museums in Syria.

We spent a few hours taking in the collection, after enjoying breakfast in the lovely atrium cafe. The variety worked really well for us - I loved the Greek and Roman sculptures, while my boyfriend was impressed by the brilliant collection of French art. Something for everyone - and free on a Sunday.

Beautiful paintings and art. Go on sundays as the admission is free. Just a 5 minute walk from Tivoli. Would ideally combine it with a 1 hour visit in the morning followed by a visit to Tiwoli gardens.

We very much enjoyed the range of collections on display and the architecture of the museum is well worth a visit just in itself. Highly recommended.

Visited this lovely gallery the day after the Copenhagen shootings. It really helped to restore peace of mind as such a calming place. Loved the indoor garden. Fantastic collection of statues and variety of Art work. Lovely cafe and small shop if needed. Definitely recommend. Bonus that it was free on the Sunday we visited .

Loved the Kiss statue by Rodin! The children also enjoyed the Egyptian mummy cat. The building itself is a joy to walk around and the pattern tiles are lovely!
