The art is not the best I have ever seen but it is nevertheless an interesting and well curated collection. I particularly enjoyed... More

This gallery is located in a beautiful building, walking distance to central Copenhagen. The collection of Matisse paintings is outstanding. The modern art is very interesting. The cafe was excellent. Great food!

This gallery is very easy to find your way around. It is well organised and set up. The Danish sections are the attraction of course and well worth a look.
