I have been here twice and it is always a nice visit. There are a lot of different sculptures and other things from Roma, Egypt, etc. It is not huge, you can visit it in 2-3 hours and it is free on Sundays!

Liked everything from the inner garden to the Egyptian Collection. Also visited the conservators room, as a professional (researcher). Enjoyed also excellent catered cocktail party.

If you go to Copenhagen, then take some time to visit Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. It has a very nice area with palms and trees inside the building, and the ambience is fantastic walking around looking at alle the the different sculptures and art. I would definitely recommed this.

Looked forward to seeing this museum after previewing it on a travel show. Enjoyed the tropical atrium with the "Water Mother" sculpture by Kai Nielsen. We purchased a Copenhagen Card which included the museum fees as well as bus,train and canal boats a great way to visit. We were most impressed with Egyptian Collection. Love the way it was displayed... More

Love it here, fine museum. Arts, history etc., you find it all here. Lovely cafe in the atrium, absolutely stunning with the big palm-trees and fountain. The building as such is stunningly beautiful, there is a lovely little park at the backside of the building. There are actually "flames" in the brickwork, which goes with the lettering on the building.... More

A good museum with a beautiful inner garden. If you have been to Greece or Italy the exhibits will not impress you much. The impact of any museum is revealed a few days after the visit, when you bring back the items engraved in your memory. The Egyptian section you get a feeling that is a copy - paste of... More

I love this place in Copenhagen. To be honest, their collection of sculptures only had me interested when it came to Danish sculpture and Rodin's work (very beautiful): the gem was the small French impressionist collection. Monet, Degas, Gaugin, even a Van Gogh, these lovely pieces make an Impressionism enthusiast like me want to visit back. It's not the Musee... More

Loved the small collection of impressionist art. Could get up close to some gorgeous Degas sculpture and Rodin sculpture, but room after room of sculpture got boring. Best if you are a connoisseur of sculpture.

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

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.
