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 Reviews & Ratings
Very impressive collection of sculptures. Must visit if you are in town. Their late hours are very convenient—we played tourists most of the day and came at 4pm with time to wander around waiting for dusk. We couldn’t believe how extensive the mythological statue and Roman bust rooms were.
This place is awesome. There were so many things to see, especially the French sculptures which took our breath away. We spent so much time here and loved every second of it!
This was the first place I visited on my trip to Copenhagen and was absolutely stunning, setting things perfectly for my holiday. The sheer amount of beautiful sculptures to see here and to take in is breathtaking, with very interesting items from ancient Greece and Egypt. Alongside this, there was some amazing contemporary paintings based around the theme of memory which I enjoyed. I would very much recommend going here.
I don't know for others, but for me museums of art must be taken in gradually with enough time to ponder, think and sometimes to consciously dismiss. And there is quite a lot to consciously dismiss here, which is only natural with a collection this huge. But there are also works that are exceptional, very good and interesting. What I'm trying to say is that it would be best to be coming back here for a couple of days. And that the free entrance Tuesdays aren't perhaps the best unless you are on a budget.
This place is the most amazing ever!! Building alone is worth its weight in gold, amazing rotunda and atrium and great skyline rooftop views. We were there for the Pierre Bonnard special exhibit which also happened to be the best art exhibit I’ve ever seen. Truly awe inspiring. Make this a #1 priority for your trip to Copenhagen.
