Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is an art museum founded in 1888 by the brewer Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914). The museum contains two main departments of ancient and modern art, offering a unique combination of art in impressive architectural surroundings.

The Department of Antiquities houses excellent collections of Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman art, providing a delightful stroll through 3500 years of art and history.

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.

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

The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek 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.
