This was another nice museum. Impressive works of art. It is definitely a good time to have the Copenhagen card when you are scheduling museum visits and castles during your trip. Like many they have storage lockers to you to stick backpacks, purses, etc. It is really nice to see countries keeping a flow of history as a reminder of... More

This was an easy to find museum (and close to the National Museum of Denmark where we went for the morning). This is a very interesting art museum built around the collection belonging to the son of the founder of Carlsberg Breweries, and it is a very impressive collection. It is free on Tuesdays, the day we happened to be... More

The location is a bit hard for me to find. I did not join the tour and did not have the horse ride. I believe it will be more fun if I have both of it. However, I cannot made it. The good side is it is free if you have Copenhagen Card and 2 big class of beer is... More

We went in the front doors of this impressive building to see what was offered inside. We could see many statues and it looked cool. They were providing free tickets today so even better. We had to check our backpack down stairs in a free keyed storage area so we put our coats in also. Wow, this place was awsome... More

A must do whilst you're in Copenhagen. There is also a lovely cafe for lunch or coffee. A shame that they had run out of written guides!

First - plan on a half day to visit this museum. There is so much to see and experience that you just don't know where to start. So much beautiful are, statues, and history in so many different areas. Just the building itself is a superb piece of architecture. Definite must see in the city

This museum is definitely worth a visit. It has a great collection of sculptures housed in a very majestic building. There is also quite a good collection of French Impressionist and post- impressionist works.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
