Probably the most disappointing nation art gallery - not a huge amount of modern Danish work that was really worth seeing. Some of the older work was good and interesting, but otherwise a bit disappointing.

Most of the museum is free of charge, with only certain special exhibits having a fee. Take your time and enjoy this world class museum of art.

This museum is quite large and there is lots to see, children may find it a bit boring at times but I'm sure the shop will make up for that, they had all-sorts in the shop and all seemed to be reasonably priced. The museum is free along with the lockers (you need to put your bags and coats in... More

We had half a day to spend looking at Danish art. We had been most interested in Munch, but found so much more to enjoy. The collection was arranged in date order, so we followed art development from antiquity to modern times. I really loved the icons, then just seeing how art developed. I had wanted to see the Scream,... More

Lots of Art and more art It's very arty, some good classics from the masters plus some doodles upstairs in the modern arts exhibition... worth a giggle! Actually, the main gallery of paintings is very impressive and worth a good couple of hours!

This is an awesome place that combines the ancient and the modern harmoniously so that you do not even feel the transition between the old and the new. It is a magical place that will make your journey even more beautiful.

Lovely cafe, great information in English about art and artists on display, great collection of French art but felt that the collection was narrower than I had anticipated as with the European art section. I am sure others more artistically knowledgable will disagree but I left feeling somewhat unfulfilled and unusually lacking in postcards!

It is a must to visit the National Gallery if you are an art fan and enjoys great architecture. Hours are easily spend and the mix of permanent exhibitions and specials are great! I can also recommend the National Gallery of Denmark as a venue for larger business arrangements. They are very professional and the best partners for larger arrangements.

This museum is in a beautiful old building and has a fantastic nordic children's museum where they can play act with viking costumes, a ship, a kitchen, castle, life size horse and building site. It's fantastic and free! I think there are even free strollers and locked cubbies. Unbelievable. The shop is beautiful and pricy as is the cafe. We... More
