Excellent art museum. There is a fantastic temporary exhibit of an artist (Rodin) who done fantastic sculptures in his time. Top tips: go to the cinema room and watch the film about him first before you go into the exhibit. This will help your understanding of his work. There are also great free lockers for you to store your belongings.... More

First of, the museum building itself is great. Large, friendly, airy.... Entrance fee is 110 Krone which is ok. Free WiFi. But, the artwork is not exemplary. Nice pictures but nothing special. I was disappointed and in retrospect I would not have gone had I known. However, if Scandinavian art is yours, this is definitely the place to go. If... More

Really enjoyed this gallery - a nice mix of collections and seemed reasonably priced. We were happy with a reduced rate for being under 30! A great escape from the rain.

Rodins' drawings were amazing: nicely presented and really informative exzibition that left me both inspired and thoughtfull. The permanent pieces are mostly by Danish artists all the way back from the 14th century up to nowadays. The contemporary part was the most outstanding and interesting. The older works are something we've all seen before some place else but they are... More

When we paid the admission of about $35 for two adults, I wondered if this museum would be worth the price but it turned out to be several museums in one, contemporary and older art in two buildings that are connected by walkways. The French art of the peri-20th century had some great Matisse works and a few of the... More

You need to decide how long you want to spend here as there is plenty to see. We concentrated on the Danish and Scandinavian artists, which are well represented. I wanted to see the paintings by Hammershøi which I enjoyed, though I wished there were more. If you cross the bridge to the new extension you can get right up... More
