Whilst some of the exhibitions were typically a bit pretentious this gallery is a great place just to be in for a few hours. The newer part of the building is a stunning space. The cafe was a cool, chic but relaxed place too.

Wasn't sure what to expect when visiting the national gallery, as I thought it would be a stuffy gallery full of old portraits. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the different exhibitions, some though provoking works in there and a very beautiful building. Loved the...More

Compared with the Norway National Art Museum, this one is very disappointing. It has a few quality Nordic works, some Fauvists, one Picasso, a few Braques. For the admission of about US$ 18, it didn’t seem to me worth the price or the effort.

My partner and I are museum lovers for sure. This is one of the most meaningful collections I've seen. The exhibitions made quite an impression on us. The SMK is well organized and distinguishes itself from other museums in many ways. We bought out tickets...More

It will take awhile to go thru the whole place. It is a good look at the total history of the country. Had a great lunch at Smor.

Well worth a visit with an extensive collection. The Danish Art was the highlight but the European Collection also contains many interesting pieces some by well known artists. The cafeteria looked expensive and hot so we went elsewhere.

The admission price includes the special exhibits which is always nice. This is a large gallery and spans a wide range of years so there's something for everyone. Some great paintings by Danish artists.
