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. Plan your visit to Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Copenhagen vacation planner.

  • In short it's a bad copy of the British museum in London, i.e. inside has great variety of things like paintings, mainly by local authors, Egyptian and Greek statues, Roman remains, all in very small quantities. Very nice inside there is the covered garden

  • 2 free drink tokens included in the tour and also part of the Copenhagen pass. A great museum, a little out of town but worth an afternoon stroll around, especially to see the huge working horses. Try...  more »
  • A museum sublime by its collections than with their presentation a huge place with an atrium and palm trees, which has extraordinary collections of the era at the end of the 19 th century pretty shop and friendly staff

  • 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.
