  • Beautiful art gallery in spacious premises and treated: very rich and varied the contemporary section (perhaps the most interesting part)
    View original
  • Wonderful gallery with all kinds of works of art. Well maintained and well worth the cost. Definitely a great place to go to learn more about Danish culture as well! 
  • SMK has a great art playground where kids can paint, create their own small art pieces that grand parents love for Christmas
