This is one of my favourite places in Copenhagen. The building itself is remarkable and the little palm garden inside it will take your breath away! I particularly loved the sculpture collection and the Egyptian exhibition - there are even a few mummies downstairs.

This is a must-visit Art museum for anyone travelling to Copenhagen. The collection, the building, the central covered garden/ courtyard, the staff and the entire ambiance is absolutely mind-blowing. And after you complete your Museum tour don't forget to stop by at the cafe and Museum store next to the garden. You will love it !

Must see when you are interested in art! Since located next to Tivoli you can decide what to prefer :-) Excellent permanent collection of French art among others. Great architecture with great central hall and open terrace on the roof. Great temporary exhibitions.

Quite simply one of the best museums I have visited worldwide. I wont say too much as you need to visit and see the exhibits for yourself, but what a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. I was overwhelmed by the Egyptian collection and the Degas Exhibit in particular. Also for lovers of Rodin and Gaugin, wonderful collections of their... More

Very beautiful indoor garden, wasn't too expensive. Aesthetically pleasing museum and due to the garden and the amount of beautiful statues, this museum is also great for those who tend to keep museums boring.

Well stocked merchandise shop and beer! A lot of choice at good prices. I brought the Christmas beers home as presents :) Museum is quite small but lovely. I... More

This is a fabulous building where the Winter Garden serves as a lovely spot rest and reflect amongst the vast collection of sculptures. The facilities were excellent with plenty of space throughout the galleries and an incredible selection of Roman and Egyptian treasures...it does make you wonder if these should be retained as national heritage in their own countries though...

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.
