The museum is amazing. I am an art lover, but I was unprepared for the quality and quantity of the fine art. The sculpture and paintings are world class for any city or country. Do not miss the modern wing - 3 floors at the museum's rear; it's full of classic modern paintings. Please ask how to walk to this... More

A beautiful museum and lots to walk around and see...you need a few hours and therefore time ro see everything. The cafe is also great in the museum and the shop too.

Reminded me a bit of the British Museum with the glass covered atrium in the centre. Spent a couple of hours looking at the Impressionist paintings and wonderful sculptures. Would have liked to have spent more time there but was only in town for the weekend. Well worth a visit.

... who made this amazing collection available. It's all that the other reviewers say it is AND MORE. Wish it opened earlier, but that's not a major drawback as there is much to do in Copenhagen.

This museum is a pleasant surprise. Their collection of sculpture is unsurpassed anywhere else I've ever been. Beautifully displayed in a remarkably well lit building near Tivoli, I was overwhelmed by the marvelous Greek, Roman, Egyptian and French works. There is also a fairly sizable collection of French Impressionists, with Degas and Gaugin the leaders of the pack! It's a... More

This place is a one treasure of a museum and houses great works by many of the old masters. The name of the museum does feel a bit bizarre but it's a must see for any art lover!

And I have seen his works in Paris, mind you. Of course, a lot of mediocre pieces as well - but also several gems by other good French artists, esp. the Impressionists.

Mr Jacobsen, whose collection you view at this museum, was a man whok new what he liked. He liked artefacts from the ancient world and French art and ... well, actually, that seems to be it. An odd combination for sure, but nevertheless it works in this glorious museum. The sheer scale of what he collected is impressive and I... More

This museum contains some marvelous things but the installation of the sculpture, the highlight of the museum, was rather strange. The works were so jumbled and poorly displayed that it would be difficult to be excited about any of them, even though there were some great works.. Rodin's "Burghers of Calais" was particularly unfortunately placed. I teach college level advanced... More

This museum had a wonderful collection of Impressionist art as well as Danish art, sculpture, Egyptian artifacts and a beautiful winter garden. It is free on Sundays which was great. However, it was a heat wave when I was there and it was beyond hot inside (no AC)except for the Impressionist section. I was so relieved I stayed in those... More
