What an impressive collection! If you are into art, there are many masters paintings here. It is also a museum with many extensive collections in sculpture and antiquities.

Wonderful museum. We visited on a Saturday and it was lovely to walk around in relative peace. We had some rooms to ourselves. A must see. We didn't have enough time to do it justice and I would love to return to see more.

Much has been said about the oustanding exhibition of the museum, raging from ancient Egyptian art to Rodin. The Roman sculptures and portraits of emperors are also striking. I was lucky enough to see the exhibition based on the Glyptotek's project of tracing and restoring color of the ancient marbles - truly fascinating! The building itself is very beautiful and...

World class collection of art, with Denmark's largest collection of French Art with an emphasis on the impressionists. There are works by Manet, Monet, Degas, van Gogh, Cezanne and Rodin. The collection of Paul Gauguin's work is one of the finest in the world. Visiting on a Friday morning in December it was very quiet, which meant we could wander... More

Starting from 5000 year old Egyptian art, which makes you think a lot. Nice collection of 19th century French art. Perhaps few too many heads.

I loved everything! Nice staff, café and museum. Café could be a bit better for people with allergies.

The brewery is about a 10 minute walk from Copenhagen zoo. The architecture is amazing. We did the tour and it was 8 DKK for the tour including 2 beers. It was good value for money and the tour lasts around 45 minutes. You can either do it self guided or go on an organised tour. I would recommend visiting... More

The museum is really big, You have to reserve at least 4-5 hours to see everything, and it still going to be a fast ride. I recommend this for the whole day like we did.

I really enjoyed the works of the Eckersberg and Dahl, I'd go back again and again just to see Eckersberg's Moderate Gale, Heavy Clouds, just brilliant. And what a brilliant setting for a lovely collection.
