Fantastic sculpture and art display.Fortunately for us, we also got to see a music show.Plan to go on a Thursday since they are open beyond the regular weekday hours.There is small open area in the center with a garden where you can relax.We had the Copenhagen card and it was covered.

This is a nice museum, I particularly liked the French masters paintings. Nice cafe although we paid 125 kroner (£14) for a small Brie sandwich. Just a few minutes walk from Tivoli Garden.

Didn’t really know what to expect, but had a really great time. The building itself is so pretty and worth strolling around and looking at. Then there’s the art collection. I had no idea there was so much fine art in the building. Well worth a visit and great thing to do in the middle of Copenhagen.

Very good selection of French impressionist paintings of the third floor which I really enjoyed. A nice palm gardens to sit and relax in and a very good shop with good selection of art books. Very enjoyable visit for a couple of hours.

OK, to be frank, I had never heard of this museum before. But it has an architecturally impressive facility right next door to Tivoli, so I figured, why not? Imagine my surprise when I find that the collection is absolutely amazing. Stunning. Well curated. Deep and extensive collections. A winter garden with palms brusing the 4-story glass dome.

This is a special museum in that way that it consists of so many things to see; paintings, sculptures, Collections, antiques and on top of that - special exhibitions. You can't leave disappointed

I have seen much better scultures before so i was not amazed. The only thing i liked was the frech painting section of this museum, which depicted some paintings of famous painters like monet, gauguin and picasso.

Unlike the similar saying about beer, this probably is the most spectacular, feel-good bulding in Copenhagen, not to speak of world-class antiquities as well as French impressionists. A must-visit place even if only for the sake of the building itself.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
