I had no advance warning that I was to see a magnificent collection from an early 20th century magnate who had a great eye for the Golden Age of Danish Art. The museum is intimate, works are well-displayed and, at least when we went there,...More

Small but charming museum that specialises in the 'golden' age of Danish painting ... although my Copenhagener companion said much of it was romantic fantasizing. Even so it is nice to wander around and there are also realistic paintings of fishermen in the seaside vollage...More

I love to visit museums while traveling, especially to see works by local artists. I was referred to the Hirschsprung Collection by someone at the Danish National Gallery, which is right around the corner. It is a small museum consisting entirely of Danish artists and...More

Your appreciation of this museum will depend on your taste in art. If you like the Danish painting scene of the 19th century, with its beaches, nature and sailors, you will love this museum, if not avoid it. The building is attractive, paintings well hung,...More

This is one of Copenhagen's best-kept secrets. This museum has a fabulous collection, especially of Danish masters, including the iconic image of the government establishing the constitution in 1849. The realist paintings give a good glimpse into the way Danes used to live. A quiet...More

If you want to see a charming collection of paintings from Denmark ‘s Golden Age, this is a good place to start. It is housed in a small Neo-Classic building near to the Art Museum.
