The SMK is the national gallery of Denmark and the largest art museum in the country. The museum is located in central Copenhagen, near to the Rosenberg palace and Museum of Natural History. While my husband went to explore Niels Bohr Institute, I chose to witness the Danish & Nordic arts of the last few centuries. The museum exhibits European arts from 1300-1800, Danish & Nordic art from 1750-1900, French art from 1900-1930 and Danish & International art after 1900.
Practical info: The museum is accessible by public transport as well as walkable from the city centre. The museum’s collections constitute almost 9,000 paintings and sculptures, approximately 240,000 works of art on paper as well as more than 2,600 plaster casts of figures from ancient times, the middle-ages and the Renaissance with older objects coming from the Danish royal collection. single ticket for adult is 120 DKK with an opening hour from 10-18pm Tuesday to Sunday. Wednesday it is open till 20 pm and as usual in Europe, Monday it is closed. Reduced tickets are available for students and free for under 18.
