We really could have spent the entire day at the National Gallery - there's just so much to see! I loved the collection of Scandinavian art, but there are many other collections as well. The gallery between the buildings is incredible.

When a museum introduces to me an artist I haven't met before - this is a success. There were several artists that in my poor knowledge I haven't known about and here I saw and liked their work. The one that left the most impression on me was T. Rombouts "Card & Backgamon players fight over cards".

Good collection. Strange placement of paintings. Few in line on the wall. Good place, very simple to find.

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.
