This is a beautiful museum that can be viewed in a few hours. It’s a nice collection and we spent a few hours here then moved on with our walking tour of Copenhagen. They provide lockers in the basement for your bags while you tour.

I have already been to Glyptotek a few times. If you visit Copenhagen, you must visit this place. The garden, the exhibitions, the shop, are all excellent. It always gives me a good vibe when I visit this place.

I’ll be honest, the draw to this museum was the collection of noses (as heard about on QI) and a toilet break. Toilets are available downstairs before you pay. There was lots in this museum with a beautiful courtyard and cafe in the middle. I...More

First I must say that I'm not an art specialist but I do appreciate art in general. I love the mummies and the interior garden, but the rest were statues witch I'm not a fan off.

You could spend an entire day there. We just went to see the French collection ( which was in a beautifully air conditioned new part of the museum) and spent two hours there.

It is a private art collection. Carlsberg has many sorts of arts, not only one theme.

Copenhagen NY Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum-Nazi Swastika (1 Replies)
We walked around the outside of the museum and while admiring the exterior arechitecture we noticed that the Nazi Swastika was a permanent part of a few window frames.They are located on the bottom corners of some windows. Does anyone know why the Nazi Swastika is part of the building architecture? Thanks, B.Baker

Response fromAndreadoria56|
Before the nazies adopted the swastika as their evil symbol it was a popular end universal used symbol. In India it was a symbol of the sun. The Carlsberg Brewery used it from 1881 as a logo until the nazies gave it a bad name. Then it was removed from labels on beer but not everywhere on Glyptoteket and the brewery in Valby.

Be aware that most of Rosenborg Castle is closed for renovations - the treasury and temporary exhibitions are open. I would do careful research before you get a Copenhagen Card - many museums are free all the time, others one day a week and you can get a ten clip card for use on trains. I would Google the Copenhagen Card website, and look to see what discounts it will offer and whether it is cost effective for what you intend to do... Also, I would try not to pack too much into one...More
