Owner description: NY CARLSBERG GLYPTOTEK – EXPLORE 6000 YEARS OF ART This beautiful museum, founded in 1888, invites you to discover Northern Europe’s largest collection of Ancient Mediterranean art and visit the leading collection of French Impressionist paintings in Denmark. The wonderful buildings are filled with atmosphere and every corner offers a new experience. The heart of the museum is the classic 1906 sub-tropical winter garden with tall palm trees, a fountain and a fish pool. The museum was founded by the renowned brewing magnate Carl Jacobsen, who made Carlsberg beer known world wide.Address:Ny Carlsberg GlyptotekDantes Plads 71556 Copenhagen

2 free beers *****
The only down side to this is the location, took us a while to find it. However when we finally arrived we had a great time!

“Nice museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Nice museum for a break from the shopping in Copenhagen. Really nice egyptioan collection. The paintings are not the best known ones, but a lot of world leading painters are represented.

“World Class museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The building in it self is marvelous, designed by the great Danish architect Dahlerup and gently expanded by Larsen Architects. It includes a beautiful winter garden.
The art collection is absolute also worth a visit, especially if you are into french impressionists. They are ALL here, including van Gogh (who was Dutch).
It is property of Carlsberg Breweries, and the entrance is free on Sundays.

“Beautiful way to spend a few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Gorgeous building, beautiful atrium. Very much enjoyed the Degas sculptures. Didn't find all of the exhibits mind blowing, as larger exhibitions can be found elsewhere in the world, but this is still a very nice place to spend a rainy afternoon.
