Admission to the Museum is free so it's definitely worth a visit. It's not a very large museum but it does have an interesting collection of mummified remains including the famous Bog Woman. The Viking Ship recreation is also pretty cool to see.

This was our second visit to Copenhagen. We saw many of the "top sights" last time with the Cphn Card. We wanted something to do to fill about 1.5 hours and this was a great choice. It was a little rainy so indoors was good, and it was also free admission. We were surprised at the quality of the artworks... More

The gallery has an excellent selection of paintings including some of the great masters. Entrance is free except for the special collections. One could spend many hours here. There is an excellent selection of Dutch artists and portraits.

Contains some nice pictures but isn't a world class collection. The Glyptotek is a better collection for real art lovers. Impressive building. Good cafe. Contains modern art as well as previous centuries. Mostly free, with charges for some exhibitions.

I have a bias toward the classics and more traditional art. So that part of the gallery we easily my favorite. There are some great paintings there, I particularly like one by Bloch. The more modern section was less impressive to me, but i am sure others would enjoy it. Good solid gallery

Has the best of Danish art pre 1900's in the old building and the best of European and Danish after the 1900's in the fabulous new extension. Lots to see. Cafe menu is great too!
