First off, if you have limited time in Copenhagen, I would not recommend this gallery, simply because there are much better galleries in Copenhagen. However, it must be said that entry is free and there are some interesting modern Danish pieces. Certainly that is where I would focus my time- the French and European sections are, almost without exception, boring... More

Apart from being a nice museum in beautiful surroundings, it also has nice Collections of international art like for instance Matisse. The best part, I think is the exhibition about Danish art from 1800 to 1900. It really shows you how art develops through the period, and some of the Danish painters are exceptional: Eckersberg, Købke and others. Nice cafe... More

I loved this gallery. It was so large that I did not get to see everything they had to offer. The cafe had wonderful food and it was so relaxing to eat and watch the kids going down the hill with their sleds outside. I highly recommend going here.

Excellent place to see Danish pre-war and post-war modern art in spacious and light rooms. The collections are large so I recommend focusing, for example one century for one visit.

Emphasis is Danish and Nordic art, However, even art from the rest of Europe and some heavy masters.For my part, I wish for more works from Skagen period.The weakest point was the modern art.Fully stocked shop with art literature.

The collections stretch from medieval painting to modern times and is - not surprisingly - concentrated on northern european art. Especially interesting dutch paintings from 17th century and 20th century france. Contemporary danish art you will find in the newly build wing, but the real treasures are the danish paintings from 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. And... More

We visited on a cold and rainy December day and loved it. We learned so much about Danish art and surrealism among other things. Absolutely huge, easy to get lost but really good. Great shop as well.

I'm an art lover and I absolutely love this place. Entrance is free. Great selection of art - especially Mattise and Braque masterpieces. I am not familiar with Danish art, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. If you like art this is a must see in Copenhagen!
