4.4
#3 of 405 in Museums in Denmark
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • This was my second visit. The sculptures and all the displays are wonderful. The only important thing is that it is a big place and quite spread out so one needs a couple of hours to explore the place...  more »
  • A nice Museum quite divided, you visit flowing fast enough. Classical art and at the top there is a good collection of Impressionist works. A visit I would say deserves.

  • A few Greco-Roman collections in this museum to the retro charm, but with a few jewels of Paul Gauguin, Cézanne, Monet, Van Gogh, Rodin... Visit certainly!

  • This is a magical place. Easily my favourite museum. Stunning breathtaking modern sculpture collection. It has one of the richest and incredibly well curated French Impressionist collections including works by Monet, Pissaro, Degas, Cezanne, and Van Gogh. The museum has a fantastic cafe with gourmet open Danish sandwiches. I loved this place.
  • The collections of Roman and ancient Egyptian sculptures and artifacts were phenomenal. The mosaic in the central Roman chamber was particularly wonderful. I could have easily spent another 2 hours there.
  • I don't know why is not that popular, one of the most beautiful museums in Copenhagen. During summer time they open till late on Thursdays, and there's hardly anyone there, so your pictures will look amazing without tourists around.
  • Great collection, especially if you like sculpture. A lot of ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian sculptures. Very good collection of Rodin. Good number of impressionist paintings as well.
  • Went with my 3 year old daughter. Not so interesting for her, but ok. Lots of Greek ancient statues. Beautiful interior, very nice garden

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
