The building was worth a visit on it's own though the exhibition was well worth taking time to savour.
An amazing collection of scultures, paintings, and Egyptian artifacts in a beautiful setting. At one point while going down stairs to see the mummies we were confronted by a mummy coming up the stairs (it was a special day for school children and they had a live mummy walking the halls!). The atrium area provided a wonderful piece of nature... More
They had Van gogh, Matisse, Degas mixed in with Egyptian, Greek and others. I really liked the Little Dancer Aged Fourteen bronze cast by Degas, just sitting under a spotlight.

this is a very good museum, paintings to old statues and even a few mummies in the basement! the building is in the city centre right next to Tivoli and central station, easy to find. Free admission on Sundays. there is a famous café inside.

It has a most wonderful collection of art pieces from all the important periods. I find the marble statues and busts most fascinating. There is also a collection from Ancient Greece and the Mediterannean dated back to 6000BC.
If you have any interest in the ancient history of the egyptians, the greek and roman empires way of life, culture or fantastic artiistic skill an also french and danish art this is an absolute must whenever in Copenhagen.
