This is large gallery, and to spend a few hours there is not enough. There are useful notes of information attached to every painting, and it takes quite a lot of time to read it all.

My visit to this museum was a happy accident. I wandered in on a chilly winter afternoon. A room full of Rembrandts?! Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Modigliani. I especially enjoyed the Danish artists because I know so little about them. It was a discovery. Combine your visit with some time at Rosenborg Castle which is right across the street.

A large collection of art, covering European artists from over 400 years. A large section is given to contemporary artists, and you can follow the development of artistic expression by walking the collections in time order. No big hits, but interesting pieces.
There is a map for each part of the museum, suggesting different walking routes. They also sell other guides, and provide you, if you happen to like it that way, with an iPad to guide you.
The cafeteria is OK. There is also an area for kids, and a room where you can test your own artistic abilities by drawing yourself.
The permanent collections are always free, for some of the special exhibitions there is a fee. Currently they are renovating the courtyard in front of the Gallery, so maybe in the summer there is a new garden in place!
