You will spend longer there than you think!

We had a short time to spend at one more attraction in Copenhagen, and chose this museum so that we could see what is considered to be good Danish art (and it is also nice that it is free). After all, we do not know any famous Danish artists. Since our time was limited, we did not even go to... More

Entrance to this museum is free except for the special limited-time displays. Many of the works were done by artists I had little or no knowledge of. Some of the pieces were "explained" on adjacent plaques, many were not. Free lockers were located on the lower level so you could store your bags and coats and not have to carry... More

SMK was a highlight of my time in the beautiful city of Copenhagen. I especially loved the Modern Art section. It contains some really moving and thought provoking pieces.

You can choose what eras you wish to wander through, in old and new wings of the building connected by a closed courtyard and connecting bridges.
