This museum is one presenting the big collection of European art. Especially important is the Danish collection. The free admission makes the visit to Museum the temptation to any visitor.

What a spectacular space! A wonderfully curated Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition. Friendly helpful staff. Guides in English and Danish. Great guide to permanent collection in English. Children friendly, super cafe. Well worth a visit.

The museum is a triumph of both architecture and Art. The danish art exhibiton is stimulating and well considered - one really gets a feel for the history.

The building is an interesting mix of modern and classical.

Be warned. The restaurant is pricey - €13 for a sandwich is steep, even if it is very good.

Unfortunately the pre-18th century collection which includes Reubens, Rembrant, Titian etc was closed - not reopening until November 2011. Some very good Matisse and an extensive Nordic/Danish collection. These however did not make up for the pieces that we were unable to see.

Also, exterior gardens at the front of the building were very overgrown with weeds which detracted from the overall look of the building.

The setup was peculiar at time of the visit, as the pre-18th century European wing was closed (which represents a third of the exhibits). The French wing was quite nice (a huge number of Matisse) as well as the Danish one. However, the temporary exhibits were only so so. One of the very few free attractions in Copenhagen (at least for the permanent exhibits).
