Make the most of free gallery entrance
Several of the city’s best museums and galleries offer free entrance one day a week. Nikolaj Kunsthal (free on Wednesdays), housed in an atmospheric former church, is an absolute delight, with its fascinating contemporary art and photography exhibitions, video installations, and beautiful backdrop. Kunsthal Charlottenborg (pictured, free on Wednesdays from 5 p.m.) is another top pick, offering an ambitious program of cutting-edge modern art exhibitions in a truly special space. Home to Europe’s largest collection of ancient Mediterranean art, an impressive collection of French Impressionist paintings, as well as a lovely sub-tropical garden, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (free on Sundays) also deserves a mention.
