Amazing building housing some great sculptures and history. For me the most wondrous things were the Degas sculptures. I had no idea they were there and it made my day. I then had tea facing the garden. Was a nice end to my stay in Copenhagen.

Most interesting for us is their collection of Gaugain. In addition they have a reasonable collection of ancient art. It is exceptionally nice to take a break during your visit in the winter garden when you can enjoy a coffee. And the visit to the museum is for free on Tuesdays.

Greek and Roman sculptures, paintings by Monet, Degas and Paul Gauguin, also Danish masters Eckersberg and Kobke are just a few of the impressive collections that are housed in this beautiful building. It's truly a celebration of major works of art past and present. Admission is free on Tuesdays.

Visiting the NY Carlsberg Glyptotek was a pilgrimage I've been waiting to go on. The collection contains some of the finest ancient portraiture in the world. If you like ancient sculpture it is definitely a must see!

I was in this beautiful city 4 days, visited non stop but this was my favorite. From the gardens outside to their great Sculpture exhibition. The Black Pharaoh, the Danish paintings, the Winter garden, everything was just wonderful to admire.
