Imagine - this fantastic gallery is free! It contains rich collections of European art from the Middle Ages up to now, special attention is paid to Scandinavian artists (which is not difficult to understand). In the cloakroom there are lockers, you have to insert a coin in it to lock it but when you leave, you get the coin back.... More

What a superb gallery - and it's free! Fabulous collection of European art from the mediaeval to the present day, with some particularly interesting Scandinavian pieces. It's well laid out and the staff are helpful and friendly. A definite must - JP recommends.

Good to wander around. Modern bit bolted on the rear of the old building is impressive. Free - maybe pop in a couple of times to see it all.

The museum has tons of information and artifacts showing Danish history from the stone age forward. If that interests you it's worth the trip. The woman at the desk advised us to focus on the Danish history and fur in fashion (non permanent) exhibits because they were more extensive and see the rest if we had time at the end.... More

A bit off the beaten path, but the tourist bureau gave us great directions to a bus stop and off we went: its a magnificent building to just look at when you first see it and when you enter there is a locker, no charge for you to put your personals belongings in, which was also at the Nat Museum...

Give yourself plenty of time as a tour of this excellent museum will take a 1/2 day easily. Great works from all genres. Very entertaining. No better way than to spend a cold winter's day.
