From Egypt to Roman, to modern painting. This museum is very complete. It takes about 2-3 hours to visit it.

It was a very rainy afternoon when we went there. All coats and bags need to be checked. We had a Copenhagen Card and needed to check in to get an entrance ticket. It is a bit confusing the way the museum is laid out...More

Copenhagen has several good museums, but this is the best one to my taste. The Rodin room is difficult to match (unless one goes to the Paris museum). It has paintings and sculptures from different eras, and a very pleasant garden with a nice coffee....More

If you are in Copenhagen you should absolutely visit the Glypotek. The sculptures are marvelous. The surroundings gives a relaxed feeling.

There is an extensive collection of Greek and Roman art and a beautiful interior courtyard. When I visited, there was also a large collection of French art on display. It is worth an afternoon's visit.

I have never been a big sculpture fan but this place has a really fabulous collection of beautiful white sculptures. The impressionist paintings are also really excellent. My favorite museum/gallery in Copenhagen.

Was one of the places we stopped on our bike ride to get some pictures of the city architecture. Allow about 30-minutes if just stopping for photos and do so early in morning before tour groups show up.

The best collection of French 19th century painting I have seen. It's like a college art course in itself.

This was my second visit to this beautiful museum and although I've forgotten how big it is, I certainly remember the magnificent "Water Mother" marble fountain and her 14 babies! The huge collection of works by the great Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen are amazing to see,...More
