SMK (Statens Museum for Kunst) is the National Gallery of Denmark. It is the largest art museum in Denmark and home to the nation’s most extensive and important collection of art, covering 700 years of artistic expression.  The museum is situated in central Copenhagen right next to Rosenborg Castle and the Natural History Museum.  Around the museum are three historical parks, the Kings Garden, the Botanical Garden and Østre Anlæg park.

SMK is a treasure trove featuring works by some of the greatest figures from art history, including Mantegna, Cranach, Titan, Matisse, Derain, Picasso, Rubens and Rembrandt. But what makes SMK truly unique is its beautiful collection of Danish Golden Age art and the collection of Danish and Nordic art featuring artists such as Hammershøi, Ring, Købke and Eckersberg. SMK also presents a range of special exhibitions, events and guided tours.
