I loved this museum the first two times I went there for an hour or so. Since an entrance fee is now to be paid of almost 15 Euro (recent change), it is not logical to hop in and out anymore, so I staid some hours. However, the whole a.o. Danish modern art section, about a third of the collection,... More

What was open was fantastic and the Japanese exhibition with European paintings sharing the same themes or motifs was excellent. Shame part of collection was closed but that didn't affect the entry price. Cafe lunch wasn't bad but wasn't the best value.

You don't get to see much Scandinavian art from this period and, while some is not great but amusing, most is beautiful and very evocative of the environment. Nice, modern interior.

Clearly I have been spoiled by the wonderful galleries of places like London, Paris and Boston, but I was just underwhelmed by the collection. It makes sense that they would give a chunk of space to Nordic artists but (forgive me) I just didn't think it was that good. Yes, I'm a heathen. There is some international stuff, represented by...

Maybe its simply the fact that we are used to galleries being for free, but for 110 danish kronas we expected something different. Unless you are fanatic of Japan, the Japanomania exhibition will be real disappointment.. Nice to see several paintings from Bosch and few things from cranach and Titian, Rubens and Rembrandt are mentioned but not really what would... More

Some important works well worth seeing the paintings are very accessible and well lit. Unfortunately our visit was cut shorter than we would have liked due to the fire alarm going off.

Great collection of art, there is even Bosch and Bruegel:) Plenty of adorable Cranach, some impressionists. Actually, pleasantly surprised about the collection. I have missed audio guide, though there is some guides inside. Very friendly staff!

The National Gallery of Denmark is expansive in its size and collection. One can find art from many eras and styles i.e. Renaissance and earlier to modern and contemporary. If you don't like one style or era, keep going. This is a great way to spend a cold or rainy day. We spent a few later afternoon hours, and there... More

The National Gallery of Denmark was a true revelation to me and I loved to visit it when I lived in Copenhagen some 20+ yrs ago. The building is such a beautiful piece of architecture, and the interior is so enjoyable. Do not pass this one if you are in Copenhagen and if you like visiting museums.

Visited the museum to see the exhibition on the influence of Japanese art on the European and in particular nordic artists of 19th -20th centuries. Museum building itself incl. the modern addition from 1998 is beautiful, the particular exhibition so -so. Well organized but nothing too surprising
