Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen
(4.4/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Conveniently located in the center of the city, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek houses the personal art collection of beer baron Carl Jacobsen. The eclectic museum boasts the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of France, as well works by masters like Picasso, Leger, and Matisse. Although antique sculptures serve as a kind of focal point for most visitors, this museum also contains one of the world's biggest collections of paintings by Paul Gauguin. An added treat for art lovers, the venue features a glass-domed conservatory housing a small cafe that serves light dishes and cakes. Take a self-guided tour of the collection, or attend one of the museum's special concert performances.

  • An excellent Museum, here is a nice stop and sit on a bench in domestic indoor garden before or after visiting. You can also grab a snack in the wonderful atmosphere of good Museum. The collection includes creativity Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works (painting, sculpture), and antique sculpture. I did not go to antique fairs, because this is not know, I was at the Museum for the sake of the Impressionists. Nice collection of Impressionist paintings (Monet, Degas, Gauguin, Pisaro, etc) and post-Impressionists (Van Gogh, Bonnard). Particularly good collection of paintings by Paul Gauguin (he was married to datchanke, not very happily, though) and a collection of sculptures by Rodin. We cannot fail to note the sculpture by Degas and his paintings. Unfortunately there are no guides, no audio description and guided tours in English are held only in summer (four), so I want to return here.

  • We were able to visit the Museum free of charge-at the weekend. It was quite crowded, but it just wouldn't hurt. The museum displays different works of art-paintings, sculptures. Visit-you will not regret.

  • What a truly magnificent collection! The world needs to be in thanks to Mr Jacobson for firstly bringing the collections together and secondly for gifting it to the people of Copenhagen. As good as any major gallery across the world!
  • Really beautiful museum and well worth the visit if only to see some stunning impressionist paintings by Gauguin, Monet, Van Gogh and others. The price was not expensive 110 kr as of this review and the museum is free entry every Tuesday. The winter garden space is magical, this alone is worth a visit
  • Lovely museum, especially for the Greco-Roman crowd. Beautiful architectural work in its own right, and an awe-inspiring winter garden. A cute cafe and always many wonderful pieces to discover and enjoy. Free on Tuesdays!
  • Fantastic statues and art! The courtyard is beautiful and relaxing. It is near Tavoli and is also free with the Copenhagen Card that you can get at the airport. Highly recommend the card, as it allows you to travel on the trains and see tons of sites for free, including Tavoli. I posted tons of pics for a preview :-)
  • Stunning museum! A must-see in Copenhagen! The displays and artifacts are beautiful and the selection is perfect.
