It was recommended to the King of Denmark in the 1890s that he create a separate museum for the preservation of Danish paintings. Thus the National Glaeery was born. The collection comprises of three types of art: The Royal Painting and Sculpture Collection, the Royal Cast Collection and Prints and Drawings and each is substantially impressive, the last of which has over 300000 items. The collection is mainly European, with some Egyptian and Greek items included. There’s nothing really that stands out, but the sheer vastness of the collection is impressive enough in itself. It’s always peaceful.

  • The museum proudly shows off work by Danish artists, but also has showcases works of art from other European countries, Nordic art and International contemporary art. If you are particularly keen on the Danish 'Golden Age' you will really love this museum and what it has to show. Despite how pleasant it was to walk through this museum (even with the school groups coming through), the majority of museum content did not really resonate with me - I put this down to personal favourite art movements, or not knowing enough to appreciate. My favourite section was probably the French Art collection, with a nice little collection from Matisse and Braq. If you're serious about getting a proper look at all the paintings and art in display at this national gallery, you could easily spend a whole day here. Even an appreciative glance will take a good 3 hours.

  • The atmosphere is wonderful but the museum does not have a great selection of art. The modern section is either very abstract or too small. Older art they have a lot and a really good selection of tho.

  • Massive collection of old Masters and contemporary art from Rembrandt, Tiepolo, Rubens to Picasso, Munch and Modigliani. The building itself is well-structured and located in a central location closely situated to several points of interest. This is a must for every arts enthusiast as most of the works here don't usually travel so this is the only place one can see and appreciate these treasures. A day pass for both the museum and the castle across the street can be purchased for a better deal compared to purchasing these separately. Take the hop-on-hop-off trolley for convenience.

  • The older works of art in the gallery were interesting and there were some beautiful pieces amongst them. Art can be very subjective. Unfortunately the more modern art was not my cup of tea. Placing a plastic chair infront of a cardboard box I struggle to classify as art.

  • Very interesting art shows and very interesting building combines both old and new building. The art is contemporary and historical too. Worth every peny
