Amazing collection of artifacts housed in a beautiful hall! Lovely cafe on site as well. If you like history then this is worth a visit.

I always enjoy my visits there. Whether alone or with friends and family. I can focus on a singular part of the exhibition, go for a Sunday concert or just walk from one wing to the other.

We went on a Sunday when it was free. But it wasn't very child friendly so probably wouldn't have gone if it hadn't been free. Having... More

Came to look at the collections of Danish and French art - was particularly impressed by the latter. The staff were very helpful, but sadly some of the rooms were closed. However, it was worth visiting for the building alone - the juxtaposition of old and modern areas, and the central glasshouse.

More busts than I've ever seen in one place. This is an awesome little museum filled with roman busts, Egyptian art and many other things. A cool walk around place for an afternoon.

Very beautiful museum, though am sometimes disappointed with the modern additions - have seen attempts at putting up modern installations around the Roman emperors, for example, and it really doesn't work well. I'd much rather they separated these things and let the Roman emperors be. It is usually very beautiful, though, and well curated.
