Conveniently located in the center of the city, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek houses the personal art collection of beer baron Carl Jacobsen. The eclectic museum boasts the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of France, as well works by masters like Picasso, Leger, and Matisse. Although antique sculptures serve as a kind of focal point for most visitors, this museum also contains one of the world's biggest collections of paintings by Paul Gauguin. An added treat for art lovers, the venue features a glass-domed conservatory housing a small cafe that serves light dishes and cakes. Take a self-guided tour of the collection, or attend one of the museum's special concert performances. Planning Copenhagen trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

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.
