#1 of 684 in Museums in Denmark
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. Planning Copenhagen trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • ♿ WARNING If you are planning to visit her be aware there are lifts between floors, however each floor has multiple small sets of stairs often without handrails. The disabled exit is locked and you need to go back up a floor from the basement to find staff to unlock it Seating places are few and far between. The collections are lovely and well curated & displayed.
  • Even if the collection wasn't magnificent, and it is, the building itself is amazing. Go on a Tuesday if you're not sold on the idea, because Tuesdays are free (at least in November when I was there). It's really an exceptional sight to behold.
