A magnificent museum with many sections dedicated to a fantastic collection of scultures from all over the world by the best sculptors in the world. Rodin's Kiss was my favourite but many of the others pushed my button's too.

I went with the specific intent to find and photograph a Greek lekythos. While I was able to accomplish this task, the museum brought out more fascination for me than I initially thought it would. For example, did you know that Carl Jacobsen in 1881 trademarked the swastika as the symbol/logo for Carlsberg beer? I didn't, but I sure looked... More

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
