The wonderful buildings are filled with atmosphere and every corner offers a new experience. The heart of the museum is the classic 1906 sub-tropical winter garden with tall palm trees, a fountain and a fish pool. The museum was founded by the renowned brewing magnate Carl Jacobsen, who made Carlsberg beer known world wide. Address:Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek,Dantes Plads 7,1556 Copenhagen V

This is a wonderful collection of European art and ancient world artifacts. We enjoyed the Degas exhibit, but were disappointed that meant the Van Goghs and some other things we looked forward to were not on display.
Recc starting with the moving French sculptures on the 1st floor. Then, see the Egyptian exhibits.
Don't worry, you get your 20 kronor for the locker back.

Spread over several floors the museum covers thousands of years of history and art from around the world. There is a beautiful indoor courtyard with fountain and cafe. There is a special exhibition of Degas going on right now. There are lockers near the ticket counter for your bags, backpacks. 20 kroner coin required, they have a change machine located near the lockers. There is also an area set up near the lockers if you would like to pack a lunch.

The building housing this collection of sculpture and art is beautiful. You enter into the Winter Garden where a lush landscape is dotted with sculpture and the glass roof soars into the sky, it's a jaw dropping moment. We viewed the Roman, Greek and Egyptian collections and the special exhibition of Degas's work and it was a memorable artistic experience. As with everything in Copenhagen it costs, so I'd recommend buying the Copenhagen card in advance and fixing your costs up front!

We spent several hours in this great museum. There was a Degas exhibit (no special charge like some other museums do for special exhibits) and it was great. Wonderful bronze ballerinas. There also is a great sculpture hall with some Rodins and others. Great artwork on the upper floors. The museum wraps itself around a courtyard. first and then there is a new building. And we had a fabulous lunch in the cafe on the main level in the cafe...which overlooks the inside garden. It IS free on Sundays...we went on a Saturday. Lady at the ticket counter said if you want to do free Sunday, get there when it opens because it gets crowded!
