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. Along with... More

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.

We walked here, which I wouldn't recommend, particularly as there us a free shuttle service , check the times; when we eventually arrived getting a beer in their restaurant/bar was a welcome treat, the tour is okay with accompanied and unaccompanied options and some good history surrounding the growth of the brewery. A huge bottle collection and a statue park.... More

A huge range of ancient and modern art, mainly sculptures, including Greek, Roman, French and Danish. The Danish section was particularly interesting as you don't normally get to see this on international galleries. A lovely atmosphere with lots of school trips and students making sketches of sculptures. There's also a free cloakroom and an area you can eat your own... More

The museum has a beautiful courtyard hothouse and a lot of the exhibitions are arranged off that. We visited primarily for the French masterpieces and they were worth the admission fee. We also liked the Rodin sculptures, particularly being able to get so close to the Burghers of Calais. We did find the layout difficult to navigate though and I... More

There are a lot of different historical things, popular pictures of famous artists. Egypt's exhibition is my favorite. The huge collection of monuments. Free enter on Tuesday.

A gem. More impressionists in any museum outside of the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. Monet, Manet, lots of Gauguin, Sisley and also Rodin and some unexpected Danish gems. All set in a beautiful Victorian building with a vast palm courtet at its centre. A must

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.
