Friday evening is a perfect time to disconnect and gather with some friends. SMK, The National Gallery of Denmark, invites you to their “SMK Friday’s”, a cozy and culture night at the museum for FREE.
This free-entrance experience has been repeated through the year, and it is a unique way to explore the museum in a new setting which places you in a relaxed atmosphere. For me it was a great experience.
The first impression you get, when you arrive, is really inviting – or like the Danish people would express it “hyggeligt”. With the recent restoration of the museum’s exterior, you can enjoy a beer by the fountain at the entrance. Sitting in colorful hammocks while looking at the Copenhagen skyline whilst chatting with your friends – is an absolutely perfect experience!
We agreed that the weather could have been far better! But thankfully, only a single drop of rain fell.
Inside the museum, whilst sipping a beer, it doesn’t feel like a usual museum-day. The hall presents a fantastic and interactive installation called “Culture Cam” made by Spild af Tid.
The museum offers a large variety of activities during the night, such as concerts, film projections & guided tours! If you are tempted to go upstairs, take a look at the permanent exhibition – but be sure you empty your drink out before you go. Drinks are not allowed upstairs.
Hopefully I’ve encouraged you to stop by SMK Friday’s next session. If you haven’t tried it out yet, I highly recommend it. You get a great mix of people, culture, leisure and friendly ambience at the SMK.
