Wonderful little collection of French paintings and sculptures among other works of art. Don't forget to take in the view at the very top.

This was recommended to us by a Danish person on our flight. By far the best museum we visited - mainly sculpture but some amazing Rodin as well as Danish sculpture. Also has wonderful Kew style atrium overlooked by the café/restaurant. A word about the Copenhagen card which gives access to many museums and public transport. Just not worth paying... More

Despite the layout plan it was not easy to found our way around, luckily the staff near the entrance were very good with their directions. Some very impressive impressionist paintings in the French paintings gallery which was almost hidden away at the top of the building. Some great architecture and a tropical garden in the centre.

We visited on a Sunday morning when it opens at 11am and is free to the public. The surroundings are beautiful and the collections both fascinating and beautiful. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal with the emphasis of making the art accessible. The collections are set out well and are well documented. The building itself is beautiful with gilt ceilings...

Not only were the exhibits well laid out and the paintings intriguing, I was fascinated by the architecture! Leave your self plenty of time to roam from room to room and floor to floor. And at the end of your visit, have a tea, coffee, beer or wine at the restaurant overlooking the indoor garden.

One of my favourite museams in Europe with beautiful interior decoration and very interesting historical artefacts. We visited in October 2014 in the middle of a sculpting exhibition which was very impressive. I also found the Egyptian and Roman sections my own personal favoutites. If you are visiting Denmark make sure to add the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek to your list... More

It's a nice place to go sole or with a company. It's delicious, well decorated and organized space. If you like art you it's packed with it. If you have children they'll remember it for a long time.

If you have ever wondered how great sculpture or art is created, this museum has several studies that were the planning blocks for great art, both sculpture and painting. There is a lovely small cafe that offers a respite too. It seems that the rage in museum in both Sweden and Denmark is the use of technology to determine what... More
