We went here on a Sunday which happens to be the day its free entry. This place is packed full of amazing art and antiquites. It's the perfect way to idle away the day on a journey that takes you through Egyptian and Roman antiquity and beyond into modern masterpieces with room after room of stunning pieces. Well worth the... More

There was loads to see for free here which was great. You could pay to have a spoken tour or do some beer tasting but a lot of it was free to look around with information plaques to read yourself. The architecture of the older sites is lovely.

A really great museum full of art/sculptures/ancient artifacts. My favorite sections were the paintings (you can see Monet, Gauguin, van Gogh, Cezanne, Manet masterpieces) and the antiquities section (Egyptian, Greek, Roman). The French and Danish sculptures section was also really interesting.

You can go any day of course but admission is free on Sundays. The collection of impressionist art is awe-inspiring and lunch in the beautiful covered courtyard afterwards is the perfect complement (but be prepared to wait as it gets quite busy).

If you like sculpture, this is your place. But that's not all. It is a gorgeous museum with a second wing of lovely impressionist art. Not huge, but worthwhile. We definitely enjoyed the cafe in the atrium, too!

The glyptotek has an amazing collection of greek and egyptian statues and art. It's free on sunday witch means you will have to deal with a crowdy museum.

My husband and I went here on a whim one day in Copenhagen to see the French Impressionist collection. Definitely not as impressive as other European art museums, but enjoyable nonetheless. Friendly staff. Head up to the roof top for a great view of Tivoli!

If you’re into sculpture, you’ll feel like you died and went to heaven. If you’re not, there’s so much beautiful, historical, and eclectic stuff at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek that you just might be into sculpture by the time you leave. The collection of paintings is impressive, too. I didn’t know anything about the Danish Golden Age, but great works... More

In the heart of Summer, don't expect A/C except in the areas containing the paintings. This museum has a great Rodin collection as well as paintings by many of the masters. Worth the trip.

My husband wanted to come to the Glyptotek to see the French Impressionists but we were somewhat disappointed in the collection. However, the museum has a large collection of statues and Egyptian artifacts that is definitely worth a look. The museum itself, with its atrium courtyard and cafe, is very pleasant. We went in the late afternoon and on the... More
