Great collection of both classic and modern art. I highly recommend the Modern/Contemporary Art part of the 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.

We liked the museum, but found it a bit disappointing. Nice building and a good amount of art, with a heavy focus on Danish artists.

This was one of the best in Copenhagen. The mixture of modern and classic art should be definitly seen. You can rest at the café down the building and continue with the special exibitions.

Building is very nice, interesting and big. Surrounding is beautiful. I was not impressed with collection. There is a lot of modern art with sound and video effects, and I am not a fan of that. For Danish art I liked Hirschsprung Collection (Hirschsprungske Samling) better. Near the museum (5 min by foot) are Hirschsprung Collection, Geologic museum, Rosenborg castle... More
