The art gallery was very peaceful and was not too crowded even though admission was free for most of the museum. The collection of classic European art was beautiful, but it was really wonderful to see an entire section dedicated to Danish art. At the bottom level, there was an entire floor of lockers and coat hangers free of charge... More

This is huge.....and one must wear good walking shoes for going up and down. As I have seen several European museums, this one is not as notable as the others, but still it tells Denmark's history.

National Gallery of Denmark (SMK) is must do for art-lovers in Copenhagen. It is huge and contains a lot of Danish and Nordic art in a chronological order. They also have some interesting temporary exhibitions. Getting to the museum by public transport is simple enough and the exterior view is really beautiful.

Entry is free and there are plenty of toilets/café/ a shop/lifts and cloakroom. Some of the paintings were very famous such as the Rubens and the Matisse collections. The exhibits were all explained in Danish and English. The rooms were laid out in chronological date order with plenty of seating to take in some of the magnificent art works. It... More

A great museum which is free, what is not to like. The art is well displayed and the English information is most helpful. This museum is well worth the time to visit.

To be very honest we didn't expected such a beautiful art museum. In 1897 by the architect Vilhelm Dahlerup was built so older part, and than in 1998 Anna Maria Indrio work was the new wing. Both are really great. And the collections! From the 13. century till today a lot of masterpiece from Cranach to Modigliani and the masters... More

I really enjoyed my visit to the Staten Museum for Kunst. From master works to modern pieces, there's something here for any art lover. I appreciated the emphasis on Danish artists as it exposed me to several painters I'd not heard of before. I'll look back on this as a highlight of my time in Copenhagen.
