I read about it before we went there BUT did not expect a brewery to help put all this together and do it without blatant commercialism. Surely nothing as big as the Louvre, etc. but there is enough there to cover different regions and eras to satisfy one's thirst for the brilliance of the ancient artists. normally, there is a...

Founded by Carlsberg beer money, Scandinavia's top art gallery has extensive artwork (including Monet, Monet, Picasso, Renoir. Cezanne, etc.) and an intoxicating artifact collection is world class, some dating back to hundreds of years BC. You'll really have tired feet if you see it all. We particularly enjoyed the priceless sculpture collection.

Beautiful facility. Clean and bright. Never been a huge fan of classical sculptures, but when presented like this...wow! Nice cafe. Lots of steps. There must have been an elevator but never saw it. Lots of good help from employees

Nice museum near Tivoli Gardens. There are many sculptures to see.... "The Thinker" is there. It has a cafe where you can have a glass of wine.

I've been in many museums around the world but the Glyptotek remains one of my favourites. The building is a piece of art itself, with the lush interior garden, fountains and sculptures. One of the finest collection of sculptures I've seen.

Fantastic museum with incredible sculptures. I could have spent many hours there. See the woman sculpture in a small water pool with 14 babies hanging on. Also classic paintings.

This is a fantastic building - but the collection is either very much your sort of thing - or not. There are only so many ancient statues I can look at - but it held the attention of me and my teenage kids for about an hour - and we entered free with a Copenhagen Card. If you have the... More

A fun visit to see a man ray exhibit. The permanent collection of French art is notable (degas) as is the space. Ate at the ground floor restaurant overlooking the interior 'garden' which was fun.

Rodin and many other 19 century sculptors. Truly remarkable. Not to be missed when you are in Copenhagen.
