The collection here has some nice highlights - Rubens, Bruegel, Matisse, Munch, Modigliani, but to be honest if you only have a few days in Copenhagen I would not put this on my must-see list. (We've been here almost 3 weeks and only just got around to this museum). It has a nice layout, although the map does not accurately... More

We enjoyed our wander through this gallery. You probably need 90 minutes to wander around. Some sign posts on street corners to help you to find these places would be very helpful. It was good to see the works of some Danish artists, none of whom I was familiar with.

Me and my brother visited this museum on our last day in Copenhagen and I am glad we did. The museum hosts a large collection of Scandinavian paintings and sculptures but also other European art. If you like paintings then you can spend an entire day here.

I like the museum because everything was written in both English and Danish so I didn't have to worry about someone translating things for me. The museum told the history of the Danish people and people of th surrounding area. They had a great gift shop too!

A fantastic collection of art works from 1300 to current which covers some of the classics and many Danish artists! A cafe is available on site for lunch or a snack. The kids were given an activity sheet to complete on their way around the gallery, as well as there being activities for them in some of the sections.

This museum's collection is quite large, much more than I expected. There are several rooms dedicated to every century, so you will have many examples of art from many European countries during each art period, from Baroque to Modern. The artwork is well laid out so that you can walk in a circular path through the museum and see the... More

I was focused on discovering modern and contemporary Danish art and was very satisfied with all exhibits. The new extension is also impressive. There are several video installations, so plan accordingly to be able to watch them. The only negative was the fact that 15 minutes before closing time we were being chased out of the museum. Not only told... More

Loved the complete collection of Danish art. Really helped me with my Danish history, too. The European collection is put together in a way that you can really follow the movements in art history - and there are some real gems. The top floor chronicalizes the newer art movements - not my taste - but still very interesting.
