The section on European Art was closed for renovations so the Danish and French Art were the sections we enjoyed the most. There are other sections, but those all have modern art, which is not something we particularly enjoy. Rather expensive to get in, but...More

This has some great paintings, Matisse, Nolde, Danish paintings of the EnliHtenment, but at the moment none of the Old Masters are on show! Avoid the cafe which is run by amateurs, with little to eat.

Nice museum for a visit when in town. The European section is currently closed for renovation. But there are still some nice work to be seen by Henri Matisse and Edvard Munch like. Close to Rosenborg Castle and Botanical Garden.

We visited the exhibition and found it seeworthy in many ways. But some of the exhibitions were "occupied" by school classes. We would have preferred a more quiet possibility to study the pictures without the school classes visiting the museum at the same time. Sorry...More

I've visited major art museums throughout the world. National Gallery of Denmark is not in that league, but the collection of Danish art is well worth several hours. If you want to see old masters or a Louvre or National Gallery London quality collection, this...More
