Statens Museum for Kunst

Visited Denmark’s National Art Museum (Statens Museum for Kunst). It has a very extensive collection of art, which was kind of overwhelming. A pity I could not see all the exhibitions. Wanted to return another day since I was in Copenhagen for 5 days but did not managed to.

The museum is one of the attractions that open at 10am so I decided to visit it first thing in the morning which will give me more time to visit the other attractions which close by 5pm. Wanted to fully utilise the Copenhagen Card 😛IMG_1763

Was a really wet day on the day I visited. The musuem has this stately/romanly aura about it.IMG_1764

Cold and gloomy. Opposite the museum is Rosenborg Castle (Rosenborg Slot) which I was to visit that afternoon. Always surreal to see a castle right in the city. IMG_1766

Like the artwork in this gallery, especially those by  Niels Hansen Jacobsen.

A lot of spaces in the museum. Like how the space in the museum blend with the surroundings.

Lunch at the museum cafe. Pumpkin soup with a dash of olive/mint dressing. The museum cafes in Copenhagen offer buffet, which was a nice concept, I thought. May make one linger longer in the museum….IMG_1773

See the open spaces? It’s great that this part of the museum is designed with glass panels/windows so one can enjoy the beautiful views while having a meal or just sitting around.IMG_1774

Dramatic turn of weather when I left the museum! Reminds me of the Chinese saying 天有不测风云,人有旦夕祸福 . It means literally that life is as unpredictable as the weather – wind/cloud may appear anytime, just as misfortune/fortune will befall men anytime. Such is life….IMG_1776

Lovely to see Mister Sun again 🙂IMG_1783

Such a contrast to the first photo. Mister Sun made everything more beautiful!IMG_1784

Shall press about Rosenborg Slot later. It’s such a beautiful castle, and the park surrounding it made it more so.
