Create an itinerary including Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
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 my Copenhagen trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Outstanding collection of sculpture and art from many eras. Almost crowded with sculpture to be honest but truly stunning works. The building is absolutely phenomenal especially under the dome in the garden area. It's a great addition to any visit to Copenhagen.
  • Very nice collection, especially the French artists, and mostly the sculptures with some majors great names like Rodin. The Gauguin and Degas sections are supposedly ones of the greatest but are currently on display in other museums... we were a bit disappointed to learn that. The building and the summer garden in the middle are very nice also.
  • Beautiful exhibitions... gorgeous gardens... tranquility. I wouldn't take young children though there are a lot of activities provided for kids to keep them entertained.
  • Wonderful works from VanGogh, Monet and others. I enjoyed the paintings more than the sculptures out of personal interest. The indoor palm trees and others in the green area give a tropical vibe. The cafe is good, the also had vegan option for torte.
  • Definitely one of the best places to go to in Copenhagen! We spend nearly 4hrs inside. It's an amazing building with great art! Free on Tuesdays but has a bit of a queue, so come early.
