If you are looking for an exciting museum a day in copenhagen - then you have to go to SMK. The permanent exhibition contains many fine works and they often have special displays presented with energy and knowledge. The building is also great to experience.

“Danish Art”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

The museum was easy to find and the staff helpful. It had a good selection of Danish Art, ( Although I would have like to see some works depicting Greenland .) There was both art from some years ago and an interesting collection of modern art, although some of the installations could have been left out of the otherwise well rounded collection.

“Must see”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is a great art gallery both in terms of the quality and quantity of the works on display. The building is a fine setting for the art. After spending a leisurely couple of hours looking at the art we went to the cafe for a coffee; things are not cheap in Copenhagen, but we paid the most we have ever paid for two coffees anywhere we have ever been. leaving that aside, I would recommend the art gallery as somewhere to visit in Copenhagen (entry is free).

“Good Museum”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

The building seems new and modern with a nice view at the cafe side. They are renovating the main entrance. It has nice collection of paintings from different European eras starting from 1500 till nowadays. They have big collection, I am sure you will find some of them interesting to you.
