Very nicely presented galleries, with helpful staff, free lockers and a good shop and café. Split into the older paintings through the ages, which are classical works. Through to the modern and in some cases more reaction provoking artworks. Very interesting throughout.

We enjoyed this gallery very much. The content and the displays are well themed and intelligently hung. The collection in the modern extension of 20th century art is worth a visit on its own. Works by Matisse, Picasso, Derain, sat alongside works by artists we didn't know; a section devoted to Danish art was an education and a delight. The... More

A wonderful way to spend a few hours. The collection is modern and spotlights Danish artists well but also boasts other fine European works. The rooms are airy and show off the artwork to good advantage. A cafe affords a convenient place to rest and grab a bite to eat. Plus the Gallery offers free admittance.

Presented a good collection of works with a good explanation of the works. Guides available in English support the experience and the relaxed atmosphere made for a a few hours lost in a labyrinth of classic and modern art. Wonderful.

Inside the building it was very modern. The art was extremely interesting and totally worth visiting. There is very good locker rooms where you can leave your jackets and bags.

So much to see, we really couldn't do it justice. We went to see the special exhibit but it was so busy we could not get in, but there was still so much take in.

I expected to be impressed by the Rembrandts, and the Rubenses, the Matisses and the Modiglianis, the Picassos and the Titians, but I was not expecting to be blown away by the collections of native Danish artists. I was planning to spend a couple of hours here. I spent six, and would be happy to go back again tomorrow. This... More

There is something unequivocally Danish about the separation of Danish art from European art. This, it turns out, is not born entirely of a sense of national arrogance so much as an actual feature of the historical narrative of Danish art and its relationship with European movements in the 19th century. I like the fact that, over the hour or... More
