The museum had 50% closed for a new exhibit and as such no modern statues on exhibit. glad i went on sunday when its free, i would have been mad to pay... More

had a quick visit to this museum. Lots of old marble statues which were Ok but they have painted wooden Egyptian artifacts that are 3000 years old and are in pristine condition with superb paintings. Found them fascinating, the building itself has a central enclosed garden with fountain and is peaceful and beautiful

Nice museum with a lovely botanical interior . As history rather than art is my interest then the National Museum was better for me. Expensive snacks!

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.

The garden in the middle of the museum is lovely. We also had some delicious food at the cafe. Saw great French painters and lots of Egyptian, Roman and Greek sculptures. Something for everyone. 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.

However sitting in the cental garden beneath the glass canopy isdelightful and the food and coffee in the adjacent cafe is first class . But only go on... More
