Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

Opened in 1888 to house the extensive private collection of art enthusiast Carl Jacobsen (best known for founding the famed Carlsberg brewery), the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is one of Copenhagen’s most prominent art museums. Displaying over 10,000 works split over two departments, the museum’s works span over 3,500 years of art and history.

While the ancient art department features Greek, Egyptian, Etruscan and Roman antiquities, the modern art department centers around a vast collection of 19th and 20th century Danish and French paintings and sculptures, among which are a complete series of Degas' bronzes, 35 Rodin sculptures, Van Gogh's ‘Landscape from St. Rémy’, Cézanne's iconic ‘Portrait of the Artist’ and over 40 Gauguin works.

The museum itself, located behind Copenhagen’s iconic Tivoli Gardens, is equally impressive, the masterpiece of architect Vilhelm Dahlerup, featuring an exquisite winter garden and café, housed in a glass-domed conservatory, and a concert hall.
