I was really looking forward to the French Art section, but the one that ended up impressing me the most was the danish art exhibition. I did not expect Danish artists to be so brilliant and skilled, I was very impressed! They became my new favourite artists. I also loved... More

We were in the area so we decided to stop by. We are not really into art so our trip was quick, but it was interesting. It is free.

Firstly it is free. They have guides as to what to see depending on the amount of time you have to spend. The shop is well stocked with lovely cards and gifts and art books. Downside it was very hot inside.

After visiting this gallery we were left a little disappointed. The gallery is missing done of the flare other galleries have in the area. The collections also on offer are also limited in style. The cafe I sit is extremely expensive, even by Copenhengen standards. You could miss this one if you've only got a few days in CPH!
