A great place to get acquainted with the works of Danish painters - and they have some really good ones. Also, while they do not have the most impressive collection of 19-20th century European painters, they have some great pieces from Matisse, Picasso, Braque and...More

We spent much of an afternoon browsing through the museum admiring works by famous artists we were familiar with and also enjoying the works of some we had not known before. A visit to the museum is well worth the time.
