Fabulous Rodin Collection!

We did not have enough time to do this museum justice. I'm a big Rodin fan, so we opted instead to enjoy the wonderful Rodin collection and then the French impressionists. Wish... read more

To be honest I think the building it self is the real museum here. The different rooms with high ceilings and colorful walls are gorgeous! The art collection portrayed at Glyptoteket is nice, but not mind blowing. The contemporary exhibition we saw had an archeologist working live. You could ask him questions which was a fun way of understanding the... More

As part of the Copenhagen Pass this was a great way to see some old masters, both sculptures and paintings. Everything was well laid out, the roof terrace was lovely in the sun and the inner courtyard peaceful. 2 areas were not open which was a shame as they were things we wanted to see.

Take care to ensure you are not frustrated by the signage which can easily confound. The Impressionist stuff is worth the search. The Danish paintings are, presumably, the best there are and are very pleasant. The Degas sculptures are surprisingly interesting (to this reviewer who has little or no appreciation of sculpture). The Gaugin paintings had been swept up into... More

Really nice to see. The extra exibituon (about death and life) was a bit of a disappointment. But the rest was really good.

Only visited here as we had the copenhagen card which allowed free entry. Not really into this sort of thing but thought we would have a look. Numerous greek models, when youve seen a couple you have seen them all in my opnion. But interesting if thats something you like. The garden was nice and so was the view from... More

Must-see thing for every art and culture lover. The building itself looks wonderful and stands among other attractions such as Tivoli Park.

We enjoyed relaxing at this museum during the mid afternoon. The indoor gardens and rooftop terrace were excellent places to unwind after an already long day sight seeing. A good amount of sculptures and old things to see- after a few rooms we had seen enough, but it was a good place to spend a few hours.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
