Concierge.com's insider take:

After its renovation, completed in 2006, Denmark's most extensive museum of art now displays a new approach. While some works in its massive collection—embracing everything from Rubens and Rembrandt to Picasso and Munch—are grouped chronologically, other canvases are now organized by theme. One gallery may hold several centuries' worth of portraits, allowing the rows of faces, variously framed by stiff Elizabethan collars and soft 18th-century lace, to build a cumulative power. Even so, the museum's golden-age Danish paintings remain the real revelation: bittersweet, contemplative landscapes lit by a falling, pearly Nordic light, and domestic scenes of elegant interiors that suggest the start of Danish Modern style.

Closed Mondays.
