I visit the Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket once a year. As soon as you walk in the door you are transported back in time. It is quiet and and calm and you can walk around at your own tempo absorbing the beauty and art. Everything is beautiful about this place and I am grateful that there are people who make sure that places like this are here for us mortals.

An absolute wonder of a museum, with the best collection of statues from the Salón I have ever seen and a collection of antique which rivals that of the British Museum - and I would say Glyptotek organizes the pieces in a far more meaningful way than the BM. The winter garden is a gem. One of the best museums I visited in the last 5 years.
