Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen

(4.4/5 based on 3,000+ 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.

  • We visited this building. Almost 400 dk entrance for two. Nice collection of images. The Department of paintings is less interesting. In the Middle grounds with a cafe where it's fine to take a blow. In short it was for us the effort here to wander around for a while.

  • Situated in the very neighbourhood of my Copenhagen address, I had the opportunity to pass by it couple of times but had little time for such an important exibition site. Unfortunately. Next time. 
  • A good way to spend a couple of hours, they don't actually brew carlsberg here anymore but you can see the old equipment and learn about how brewing processes have changed over time. Part of the tour ...  more »

  • 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.
