By far the best collection of danish art of the 19th century. Masterpiece after masterpiece on the walls of this not so big museum. Do go.

Small but charming museum that specialises in the 'golden' age of Danish painting ... although my Copenhagener companion said much of it was romantic fantasizing. Even so it is nice to wander around and there are also realistic paintings of fishermen in the seaside vollage...More
