  • A very nice Museum where paintings are very well staged. 4 large parts: temporary expo, the Danish painters, french painters, European painters between 1300 and 1800. Do is ugly

  • It is NOT the Museum I reviewed. It's nice and gets five * BUT It is the special exhibition on Japanomania. I think it is much sought. A little "the Emperor's new dress" there were lovely paintings of wonderful artists. BUT BUT it was really sought to put them in this framework. At the same time, it was quite annoying to info boards were not at each image. One had to go back and forth and recall info. Wait to read the other small info boards. No, the exhibition is not 110kr worth.

  • With the exhibition Japanomania have SMK focused on inspiration from Japan, as seen in both the French and Nordic art in the second half of the 1800 century. It is a super gorgeous and inspiring exhibition! On a tour around the rest of the House, I can only be full of admiration of all the wonderful art, which is also in the Museum's permanent collection. New lockers in the basement for clothes and bags-with code, so one does not need fir coins and fast expedition despite the long queue. A nice experience-even though it now costs the same as visiting e.g. Louisiana or Wilderness.
