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

  • 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 on a Tuesday, which is free. Had a lovely time exploring the whole place. The sculptures by Rodin and all the French abstract painting were absolutely stunning, would recommend anyone to go if they have 2 hours to spare in Copenhagen
  • Excelent variety. Paintings and sculptures of great value and beauty. Location and setup very nice. A bit hot in some rooms (in june). Not to miss while in Copenhagen.
  • Amazing art and sculpture, definitely worth a long afternoon. The interior of the main sculpture areas were much warmer and more humid than expected, though, so wear something light if it's a nice day outside.
  • A beautiful and enormous museum, from the Egyptians to Rodin to Danish and French painting. Furthermore, temporary exhibitions and a magnificent winter garden! Amazing!
