Welcome to SMK
The SMK is the National Gallery of Denmark and the largest art museum in the country. Every day we study art, restore it, photograph it, move it, exhibit it, and discuss it. We invite you to explore art in your own way as you join us for new exhibitions, performances, concerts, art talks, films, creative workshops, and tours of the Collections. Welcome to the SMK. We look forward to seeing you!
No other museum
in Denmark shows such a rich and varied selection of
art – from the European classics of the Renaissance
to the overwhelming diversity of modern and
contemporary art. The SMK is especially famous
for its beautiful collection of Danish Golden Age art,
the country’s most comprehensive collection of
Danish contemporary art – and one of the world’s best
See it all, or just what you feel like.
Enjoy brunch, coffee, homemade cake and other treats to complement your visit. In summer we also serve coffee in the garden.
Take a piece of the art world home with you – choose from a selection of the best Danish and international art books.
