About the Museum
Founded by the owner of Carlsberg Breweries, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is a public museum in the heart of Copenhagen which houses over 10,000 works from ancient to modern times. The museum's singular design features four buildings built at different times between 1897 and 2006. Home to Scandinavia's largest collection of Ancient art, visitors will find impressive antiquities from Etruria, Greece and Rome, together with mummies and tomb discoveries from ancient Egypt. The Glyptotek also boasts Denmark's largest collection of French 19th century and Impressionist art, including works by Manet, Monet, Degas, Sisley and van Gogh, Cezanne and Rodin. Danish Golden Age paintings are represented at the Glyptotek as well.
