Located just next to the Tivoli, this museum harbors much of the works of Rodin. The entrance was not free but it was worth it. Some other pieces of art and relics are found, but Rodin's work is what made it exceptional.

'Free entry Day' is now Tuesday, rather than Sunday, which we didn't find out until we got there - on a Sunday! Went over the road to the (always free) National Museum instead!

Very interesting tour and history about the family who created Carlsberg, and its commitment to architecture too. No females could be spied in the workforce in the late 19th century photos, I looked hard. Not sure whether that was Carlsberg, Sweden or Europe generally policy. But overall a good tour, I liked the horses and old delivery buses and the... More

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; and in my eye there were many wonderful, dramatic and thought provoking statues to be seen here. The winter gardens are a surprise bonus as an architectural feast for the eyes, not mention a relaxing oasis for anyone in a reflective mood. Some of the ancient art is interesting from a cultural...

My wife and I visited the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in June. We started in the basement and were blown away by the Egyptian collection. It features many fairly common objects: amulets, small statues and funerary of cats and other small animals, and mummies. However, some of the mummy cases are very late, including one dating from the Roman period, with... More

Free admission is currently on Tuesdays, not Sundays, otherwise admission is 95 DKK. The largest collection of Degas sculptures on one of the top floors is sort of neat, but no real "superstars". It can be skipped if you are short on time.

Fantastic huge museum with most beautiful cafe to have inexpensive lunch. Even if you're not an "arty" person, the gorgeous sculptures, paintings, history and special exhibits are world class. This is the number one place to see for an adult, just as Tivoli is for kids.
