The museum provides free lockers for your bags and other items. Art is not my thing but I enjoyed the walk through. Had lunch in the café in the newer building addition. You overlook the park next to the gallery. The food was very good and well presented. The soup of the day was cold green pea; very good. The... More

This art museum has an excellent collection of Scandinavian art from 1300 to the present. In 2 hours we got a great overview Scandinavian art and artists. The audio guide is free and very helpful (several languages including English) though it doesn't include comments on all the works. They also have a small impressionist collection which is worth a look.

In this gallery a good collection of Western European paintings (Rembrandt, Hals, and others) and many beautiful, not very famous Danish masters of painting.

This is a huge museum, with a large part of it being refurbished. We just missed the Japanese exhibit, which from the catalog looked wonderful. I agree with those who were slightly disappointed. There is a lot of space but the whole place seems darkly lit and there is not all that much art. This may be unfair, since a... More

Thought it would be bigger, grander, so I was slightly disappointed. Also the presentation of what they had was lacking, very dark and gloomy.

We visited to see the European collection. It was hard to find and very small. We did visit the Danish Art. To me most looked like high school students' work.

The National Gallery of Denmark houses the national collection of European art from 1300 with, as to be expected, a substantial collection of Danish art. The original building has a new extension overlooking the lake with a cafe which has recently been refurbished with a new colourful and artistic ceiling, where we enjoyed lunch. The guide books said admission was... More

The Statens Museum for Kunst is Denmark’s largest art gallery housing Danish and international art from the last 7 centuries. I appreciated the classics from Rubens, Matisse, and Rembrandt among others but also enjoyed the contemporary art on display housed in the museum’s new extension. The flow was easy from room to room and from one building to the next.... More

Fantastic place. Lot of great masterpieces. Wish we had more time to see more. We missed several galleries. "The Scream", "Waves", works by Matisse, Picasso, "The Sitting Man" by Peter Land and many more. Well displayed, good informative write up about the works in English as well. There was free WiFi which enabled access to audio description of selected works.... More

A pleasant gallery to visit. We were there for two hours, it’s quit large. We didn’t get to see everything, at five o’clock they literally throw us out!…. It houses a variety of classical and modern pieces, a large part is dedicated to Danish artists, only a few international masterpieces like Matisse, Picasso, Edvard Munch, Modigliani…
