This is a huge museum but we found our way through most of it. What an amazing place. And it's free! Just make sure you get a map and start with what type of art you like the most! Your feet will thank you.

Who knew that Denmark hosts so many amazing and talented artists? Definitely a revelation. There are European and modern wings that are worthy of a museum in and of themselves.

This is a wonderful museum that is easy to navigate and has many interesting exhibits. Entry is free and it is a refreshing place to wander around. There is a wonderful toy exhibit and many fun things to see. Great location, so an easy place to stop in the middle of Copenhagen.

This Museum has spent too much on the building and there seems to be nothing left for the Art! It just LACKS. It has no centre...it's nothing special.....and it's not only the rubbish curator management. the whole atmosphere of the place is just depressing. The stark interior of the building, the entrance staff, the cafe is just weird! And then... More

The museum has decent collection, including french art from early 20th century as well as European art from 1300-1800. The children wing was a bit small. There are nice gardens around but you can only enter the museum from the main entrance. The area in front of the the main entrance is under construction.

The gallery is out of town and it's best to go on the Hop on/off bus. An extensive collection of art work but hot and stuffy in summer.
