Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek - Review
Despite the immediate association you might make with bear, this is a actuallt a sculpture museum, founded by Carl Jacobsen. Three architecturall distinct buildings house the collection, which comprises largely of French, Danish, European and Antique work. There is a smaller collection of paintings in each section. The museum provides the perfect atmosphere to visit on a rainy day. The museum mixes the mordern with the historic very well. Allow your self at least three peaceful hours to peruse these halls.

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen Reviews
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.
Nice place to find out some stuff about the beer and its manufacturing process. They have a big collection of beers all around the world. You will receive a free beer included in the entrance fee. I also loved seeing the horses and the horse back carage ride they took us. There are a lot of interactive activities during a whole day. They also have a relaxation room where I played foosball, but there was also a place were you could smell different types of beers from ones with roses to some with bread or honey ( more than 30 kinds of beers). I had the Copenhagen card and my entrance was included in this card (i don't really remember how much was the entrance here). I recommend buying this card because you will save great amount of money both on public transportation and museum/castles fees.
A great collection of works! Anybody interested in sculptures will definitely find an oasis of beauty. Unfortunately, the French painters exhibit was closed, when we were there. However, the rest of the museum was enough to get my feet soar from walking. PS: read the descriptions- it adds value to one’s experience of the place ;)
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.
They need to update their lending policy. Why should we be limited to their short hours of operation? If one wishes to truly study and appreciate the art, one needs to view it at home, or in a warehouse next to the Carlsberg factory while waiting for that Russian with the hook hand to bring the money. What kind of guard politely says "please put the statue of Perseus back where you found it". Maybe I brought it with me! You don't know where it came from. Mr. Polite Guard Dude. Anyway....the guard made me a nice dining room table. It is so cute when it seats four, and so versatile when the leaves extend for 12. Such Hygge. Alas, since the table did not come from the museum, I have to keep my one star review to the museum itself.
