Glyptoteket

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is located in Copenhagen center and contains two main departments of ancient and modern art, offering a unique combination of art in impressive architectural surroundings.

The museum was founded by the brewer Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914) and has a permanent collection, which contains about 10.000 artworks distributed in the two main departments.

The antique Department

In this collection you can see the Northern Europe’s biggest collection of antique art, both Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman works – a pleasure walk through 3500 years of art and history. 

The Modern Department

The Modern Department focuses on Danish painting and sculpture of the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as French art of the same period. Enjoy paintings from Denmark's Golden Age, and experience French Impressionism as well as more than 40 works by Gauguin. It is also possible to see the complete series of Degas' bronzes and 35 sculptures by Rodin. 

Beautiful winter garden

In the beautiful and spacious winter garden you can take a breather and refresh yourself at Café Glyptotek where you can enjoy a piece of cake, a light lunch or maybe just a coffee in the peaceful surroundings.

Glyptoteket often holds special exhibitions which are presented as an integrated part of the museum experience. These exhibitions may require that certain works in the permanent collection, normally accessible to the public, will not be on display. We recommend checking the website for information on exhibitions and current events, before your visit.
