Wonderful museum to visit. The building itself is quite interesting to view. The art is exceptional; there is plenty of space to walk around and view beautiful art. The museum is quite centrally located - not too far from Tivoli Gardens

Excellent collection of ancient art, and the Degas exhibition was also impressive. We also visited an interesting exhibition of Roman-era treasures, discovered in France.

Am amazed at how one individual can accumulate such huge amount of Artifacts. Most suitable for those having interest in sculptures. Not many attractions open late into the evening.

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.

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
