An excellent and free art gallery. The contrast between the classical art and modern art is a real eye opener, canvasses versus installations. Fascinating. You cannot take large bags or rucksacks in, there are free lockers. Also just across the road is the geological museum, if that is not you thing just look at the meteorite in the car park,... More

I love this art gallery! We spent 4 or 5 hours here. There's older, traditional art, plus an excellent collection of more modern stuff. And it's all free! Free art, free wifi, free toilets. It's win-win-win.

I enjoyed the getting aquainted with the historical works of the region and seeing how Scandinavian artists had responded to the major art movements of Europe, as well as their more contemporary work.

Very large collection of art from several hundred years. Fantastic buildings - both the old and the new part located close to a fine park. Nice place to eat.

Must-see museum/hang out for local familes and art lovers. The views over the park are lovely. There is a (decent, not great) café. They often have great - and free - music events. Sometimes they also do evening events. For families with kids, it's brilliant. You can sign up for arts workshops at weekends. And if the kids are too... More

This is a very nice place to visit to have an insight into the Arts. There was a danish exhibition while I was there that I found intriguing. It is huge and you could spend hours in there, walking around and taking in the large amount of art.

It is absolutely free to visit, check your stuff in a locker, and receive wifi. Inside offers a lot of wonderful information and displays about Denmark and people all around the world. We weren't able to stay long enough to view all of the exhibits, but it is definitely worth a visit.

The National Gallery of Denmark (Statens Museum for Kunst) is Denmark’s largest art museum, featuring outstanding collections of Danish and international art from the past seven centuries. Apart from the permanent collection the museum also shows temporary exhibitions. Recently both Picasso and Bob Dylan have had some of their paintings exhibited.
