The wonderful buildings are filled with atmosphere and every corner offers a new experience. The heart of the museum is the classic 1906 sub-tropical winter garden with tall palm trees, a fountain and a fish pool. The museum was founded by the renowned brewing magnate Carl Jacobsen, who made Carlsberg beer known world wide. Address:Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek,Dantes Plads 7,1556 Copenhagen V

If you are not into museums (like me), go there on Tuesdays (when there's free entrance for the permanent exhibition) and you might be surprised! The building itself is a good reason to pay a visit there, the terrace was nice and the collections were pretty interesting! Collections range from ancient to 18th century's art - including Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman art.

A medium-sized museum, especially strong in sculpture, antique, French, and Danish. Some interesting French painting too.

This is an excellent museum with some lovely collections but unfortunately it was warm and airless on the day we visited. It was 77 outside but felt warmer inside. We wanted to see more but had to cut our visit short. We were grateful it was a Tuesday, when entry is free.

My nephew loved this place. We had only a little more than an hour before it closed for the day. I regret that we would have had been here earlier. The building was like a small botanical garden in the middle, nice and cozy sitting surrounding with plants and tree. There was a special exhibition on french painting at the time of our visit. The main collection of scultures were very hugh such that it was impposible to see everything within an hour

We spent about 2 hours in this museum. The exhibits are plenty and are well kept and illuminated. The rooms are spacious and well ventilated.
