An added treat for art lovers, the venue features a glass-domed conservatory housing a small cafe that serves light dishes and cakes. Take a self-guided tour of the collection, or attend one of the museum's special concert performances. Planning Copenhagen trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • This is such a wonderful museum. Architecture and sculpture collide to provide a magical experience. We were lucky enough to pick a day with good weather and not many people which made the experience really special. If you're in Copenhagen for a few days you have to visit this fantastic place.
