I visited the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek during a 5-day stay in Copenhagen. I have visited numerous galleries and museums renowned for impressionistic art, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Glyptotek collection. Many museums have one or two major works of one or two famous artists, and then the remaining pieces are from less-known artists. The Glyptotek... More

Modern, comfortable, wonderful and rich collection of modern art, egytian and ancient art, a nice exposition on Gauguin paintings. Plenty of space to admire everything, even in a crowded day. Excellent option in the city.

The building is beautiful and houses collections of Rodin along with French paintings and incredible sculptures. The building itself is a work of art. It's free to visit on Sunday

Not like the Prada or Louvre but a very nice museum that is free on Sundays. I expected more Gaugan but the Rodin's were lovely and several sculptures must see.

The collection of sculptures here is absolutely endless, including many classical busts from Greek and Roman times as well as more recent pieces e.g. a gallery of Rodins. There is also an ancient history collection that is very interesting as well, with plenty of historical and artistic context provided in Danish and English. It gets a bit crowded on Sunday,... More

I visited on Sunday but it is definitely worth paying for on the other six days. While it contains mainly sculptures, you will also find a delightful collection of paintings. The palm court is lovely to just sit and rest. The layout is a bit confusing and I had to hunt around to find the French art collection. Search out... More

Amazing lifelike statues, paintings, Italian and Egyptian art, it's endless!! Even if you don't like art, you HAVE to see it, at least the main halls and the atrium.

A very nice art museum, centrally located. I especially liked the sculptures and the indoor garden. Art lovers should dedicate 3 hours or so for a visit. Entrance is free for holders of the Copenhagen Card. If you're vegan like me, please note you won't be able to eat anything in the museum restaurant.

The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Art Museum in Copenhagen is a stunning setting for a superb collection of sculpture and paintings from Denmark and France and an interesting selection of Roman artifacts. The building was purpose-built to house the personal collection of Carlsberg brewery titan Carl Jacobsen at the start of the 20th century. In addition to the large atrium space... More
