Love their special exhibitions, and beautiful paintings. And amazing that it's free! Also a beautiful park in the back, where you can enjoy your own food or drinks.

This museum is amazing. It is housed near Tivoli and takes up an entire city block. It takes more than one trip to see it all but just walking throuogh the well appointed rooms will give you a sense of who the Danes are and what their history is from the ice age all the way through to Christiania.

SMK is one of my favourite museums. Always up to date and ready to do a little something extra for the visitors. SMK Fridays is a must to attend.

Danish and European (1300 to 1800's) paintings from the 14th century through today. Great Danish and Nordic artwork 1750 to 1900. Small but good collection of French modernists. Descriptions in each room put the artwork in historical perspective. We spent a whole afternoon there and enjoyed it very much

We have visited many art galleries in Europe and have therefore seen a lot of fantastic work by the usual suspects. Here our eyes were opened to Scandinavian art that has left us wanting to see and know more. It is rare that I buy books when visiting a gallery but I just had to purchase one on Hammershoi -...

Only gallery worth visiting (apart from Louisiana). French collection is limited, not good Picassos! Building is amazing and the atmosphere wonderful . Nice gardens as always

Astounded at the lovely collection and the way it is presented. I was introduced to many Scandinavian artists with whom I was unfamiliar. The building itself is stunning. Loved being able to get "up close and personal" to rare paintings without a guard yelling at you or setting off alarms. Highly recommend a visit.

We found the museum a bit disappointing as well as hot/stuffy on a late August day. Although seeing the Danish prehistory and some Viking material is unique only occasional items really were extraordinary- and some labels and exhibits were on the dull side compared to the modern ambience of many similar museums in larger cities.
