Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
Truly one of the city's great museums, the Glyptotek was founded in 1888. The major collection of the museum revolves around the antique sculptures derived from civilizations surrounding the Mediterranean including the countries of Rome, Greece and Egypt. The modern sculptures by artists such as Rodin and Stephan Sinding are extensively featured inside the halls of the museum. An extension houses classic artwork, including French Impressionists like Monet, Jacques-Louis David and Pissarro as well as the works from the Danish Golden Age. Admission on Sunday is free.
The architecture of the place itself is awesome! It has a good collection of artifacts from the region. I last visited the museum in 1998. I have been there twice. I did not complete the whole place yet as I am still amazed at exibits I had seen the last time. The Eygptian exibit is so well displayed that one can feel the atmosphere as if in the real tomb. WoW! Only the ones in London and New York can compare in the same categary. Would love to go back again to try to finish it!!!
Beautiful bulding, fab palm tree court card, lovely cafe and collections and exhibitions where hours of fun can be expected! There is definitely something for everyone, all ages, to be found here. I warmly recommend it.
