“Well presented collection in a beautiful building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

An interesting collection, well presented. The building itself is beautiful and features also a stunning, 3-stores-high winter garden and a roof terrasse. The guide map is helpful in finding what you want to see. In the basement there are lockers to leave your stuff during the visit, and some picnic tables if you don't want to utilise the cafeteria.

“Worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We went to Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek on Sunday because there was the free entry. It is anyway worth a visit! Inside there is a really nice garden and there are benches where you can sit on and enjoy the atmosphere. There are many rooms that host Roman, Egyptian and Etruscan finds. Unfortunately when we went the rooms hosting the works of Impressionists were close, so we couldn't take a look at them.
