I was not really sure where I was heading, other that it will contain sculptures. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. The sculptures were great - ranging from Roman times to 19th century. Additionally I got to see ancient artifacts from other civilization, including even a couple of mummies. And to top it off I even got to see an... More

I wasn't expecting too much, but I was very impressed with the selection of art. I am partial to impressionists and they had a good amount of works. This museum is mostly sculptures, and they have a huge number of works. There's a good amount of Danish art as well, both paintings and sculptures. I am not a huge art... More

included on the Copenhagen card this museum was wonderfull. We loved the hundreds of statues as well as the crypt level Egyptian artifacts and mummies on display. The museum is funded by Carlsberg Breweries and is a must for any CPH visitor.

Room after room of statues and artifacts, but what was different was the special exhibition of unframed French masters. So good to see how the artists treated their canvas, right up to the edges.

Was there with our job and did something that was supposed to be some kind of treasure hunting were you were going to get to know each other. You could only whisper, which made it kind of booring. Wasn't that fun in general either, and a lot of sculptures of unknown people in the museum.

This is a perfect visit for af cloudy day in Copenhagen. It is situated in a classical building in the city centre with a new wing made in modern Danish architecture. One could visit the place just to see the building and have a break at the cafe. For the art lover you have several smaller collections of Danish and... More

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
