In the new National Museum you can once more get close to the art works in the study room.

The National Museum's collection of prints and drawings covers over 500 years of art history and about 50, 000 works of art. The collection represents a variety of works on paper, such as woodcuts by Albrecht Dürer, etchings by Francisco de Goya, costume studies by Adolph Tidemand, watercolor paintings by Charlotte Wankel, drawings by Ane Mette Hol and lithographs by Britta Marakatt-Labba.

Individuals and groups are invited to make appointments to view works on paper by choice in the study room.  Before making an appointment, visitors are encouraged to consult the collection online, which will be continuously updated.

We accept individual visitors by appointment from 16 August 2022. Groups can arrange visits from October 2022. The opening hours will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10–16.
