La Gliptoteca Ny Carlsberg (en danés, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek) es un museo situado en el número 7 de la Dantes Plads de Copenhague, Dinamarca. Se trata de una colección privada fundada en 1882 por Carl Jacobsen (1842–1914), hijo del fundador de la famosa marca de cerveza de la cual toma el museo su nombre.
I super enjoyed the time I spent in here; although I still need to go back 👍 The museum is free on Tuesdays - you might want to avail it. They have a big room where you could leave your coats and also good lockers. The place is very big and full or artworks that are very interesting! 👍check their website for the current exhibits as it changes from a period of time. Also, it has a very nice garden inside, right at the center; how cool is that! 👍 lastly, they have clean toilets. Go and be amazed 👍
Some of the most famous sculptures in one place. Spend so much time in there. On a busy evening, you can weave through art students trying to hone their skills in front of the pieces. All adds to the great art culture of Copenhagen!
Wonderful place if you like classical historical works of art. Sculptures and inscriptions from Mesopotamia, old Greece, Rome.. paintings of masters. Great ambience in the beautiful indoor garden where music and lights are combined for an enhanced experience. Occasionally classical concerts also..
Great classic art museum. It's very large and probably can't be properly done in a day, but I gave it a go. The central indoor garden area is great to take a moment to relax and the Egyptian exhibit was really interesting. The french exhibit was well currated. The one thing I wished for was that the takeaway exhibit pamphlets were available in English as well.
It is a perfect place to go with nice interactive things to do, esp with kids. Well maintained, neatly described sections and with a magnificent painting collection, this museum is a must visit for those who enjoy exploring the realms of ancient civilizations. They frequently have special exhibitions which are really worth it.
Great museum. Lovely building and space too. We went round the French art ~1800-1950, spread over three floors. The collection is remarkable, with all the big names (Monet, Degas, Renoir, Gaugain, Renoir, and even some Rousseau that were remarkably different from the 'primitive' paintings he is famous for). First room had some of the more modern artists (Miro, Man Ray), but most of it was older than that (a dozen or so other rooms). It was a little frustrating not to have an audio guide or even labels with comments by the paintings. But I believe that was a deliberate decision on the part of the curator to create a space focused on the art, and the bold colours on the walls is quite striking. About 2hrs to go round. Highly recommended.
Glyptotek museum, a collection of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and relics, to later Degas the ballerina, some wonderful art pieces. A lot of pieces to see will be back to continue. Below ground is the cloak room, lockers and toilets. Enter thru the grand staircase, which is impressive, in the centre is an enclosed conservatory garden courtyard, with a fountain and cafe, you can have something to eat or a coffee. Well laid out and easy to get around, the museum shop had plenty of items to buy. Enjoy!!!
Beautiful art and sculptures. The Greek and Roman exhibits are really something to look at. There's also an amazing Egyptian exhibit which is definitely worth a look. Lovely cafe over looking the water feature and plants. Unfortunately the roof terrace was shut when we visited
This is a good museum, we enjoyed our visit. (Minus the cafeteria with the long line and not enough tables for the guests). But I give this museum low rating because of this swastika decoration I found on the walls. What is that supposed to mean? Is this meant for religion and good luck or as a Nazi symbol? Why this specific sign anyway?
A really nice place because the museum itself is also nice. It's not only the exhibits. So even if you usually not really interested in that kind of culture exploring it is even worth to visit it just because the museum itself is special place.
I loved this place. It is not enormous which is nice. There are sculptures and paintings to enjoy. There are a few Rodin's. But, the main attractions are the large meeting hall which is stunning and has sculptures of some important historical figures of the Roman age. There is also a large indoor garden which was an amazingly peaceful place to sit and relax amongst the trees and plants away from much of the noise of busy Copenhagen (Kobenhavn).
A great museum with things for every man, woman or child. You can find everything from real Egyptian mummies to French impressionist with a dash of sculptures from ancient Rome or Greece in the middle. There's also something that resembles a botanical garden in the middle - and a cafe for you to get some food at.
It’s one of the best places I have visited in Copenhagen! It’s so beautiful! Halls are so specious and I enjoyed even just walking there! I spent there 2hours, but it was’t enough! I definitely come here again when I come back to Copenhagen!
One of the biggest museums I have been to. The collection there is vast. make sure to charge your camera before you go there. It is a perfect place for sketching artists.
Nice experience. It felt not so cheap but mommies were totally worth it. Only thing I struggled with was the temperature at some point. It was way too hot but maybe it was because the abnormal (but awesome) warm weather in Copenhagen at that time.
Absolutely fantastic, well worth the visit, amazingly beautiful collections. Fantastic building full of stunning architectural follies. Amazing central atrium full of greenery. Nice cafe, nice staff. Favourite is possibly sculpture of a child with a dead bird upstairs- so amazingly life-like, also loved Perseus Killing Medusa downstairs. The Degas sculptures at the very top were perfect.
Perfect museum for fans of ancient sculpture, but I am not one. Winter Garden is beautiful and worth spending time relaxing. A few paintings, but if you have lots to see in Copenhagen, skip this one.
Open until 10pm on Thursdays. You can use a Copenhagen card here to get entrance. French impressionist paintings not to be missed. The Egypt section is better than the British museum! Wonderful Roman and Greek statues. The Danes were as ruthless as the British at raiding Egypt And Greece of their National treasures a hundred or more years ago! Well worth a visit. Can be very hot and stuffy though on a hot July or August afternoon or evening.
Worth it just for the incredible tropical dome and fountain (Winter garden). The Egyptian pieces are very impressive. Make sure to scour the map to find the tiny rooms spread across the galleries, they can be slightly hard to find. Also make sure to go to the terrace to get a beautiful view of Tivoli.
Spent a good two hours here. Plenty to see and admire. Can get quite hot the higher up the floors you go, that’s expected though especially in warmer weather. You have to leave you bags in a free and easy to use locker before you go around the museum. There’s a shop and cafe onsite, the cafe was decently priced and was quite pleasant to sit in looking down into the indoor garden like area.
Obligated visit when in the city, there's an amazing collection of sculptures and paintings. The central garden is very beautiful. Just to keep in mind, there's no air conditioning.
