The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.

    Again use the Copenhagen Card. Beautiful domed indoor garden with adjoining cafe. Stop here and enjoy. Great display of art and sculpture, with Rodin featuring. Take a picnic and sit in the garden whilst "The Thinker" watches over you.

    Cultural heritage at the Glyptotek
    A wonderful visit to the Glyptotek with my family. The indoor garden was amazing and relaxing. The national artworks were lovely. The numerous sculptures were intriguing to view along with the mosaic murals. Worth spending a few hours wandering around to absorb the cultural elements.

    Fascinating Display of Art
    Impressive collection compiled by a very rich individual who was actually the founder of Carlsberg beer. French and Danish artists , mostly in paintings and sculptures dominate the list of displays. This is definitely a must see. Prepare to spend at least 2-3 hours going through the exhibit. It may not be as extra wonderful when compared to those in Paris , Athens , New York and London, but it belongs.

    Copenhagen’s number 1 museum
    I visited mostly for the temporary Amarna exhibition as a lover of Egyptian history, but I really enjoyed the whole museum. It is architecturally stunning and I love the way the exhibits are presented. Most of them are from the ancient world, but head upstairs to see some paintings, including a couple by Van Gogh

    Full package: Amazing art, Architecture and Lights
    Amazing museum. Founded by the brewer magnate, Carl Jacobsen, a man who loved art and specially sculptures build an excepcional museum with a beautiful winter garden an impressive range. The Kampmann's central hall is espetacular, you fell like entering a Roman Court, Egypt collection also very interesting and don't forget to climb to terrace and enjoy a coffe or drinks at the Cafe with a view of Tivoli Gardens.

    Finding Art
    Good place to spend see loads of sculptures and paintings and all sort. All in all we spent more than three hours to see all the art work and to top it all off you can access to the roof top where you can sit and relax and have a cold or hot drink. Not to forget to mentioned the amazing indoor garden.

    Stunning building and collection
    The building is stunning! And the collection is quite impressive. Seems selling beer pays off... Take your time, because the collection is extensive. The indoor garden is serene, especially when sitting around the pond. If the weather is nice, do not miss the rooftop terrace with nice city views. A must in Copenhagen.

    A gem of an art museum in the heart of the city
    We arrived early in the morning hoping to enter the museum right upon opening at 10:00am. It seems everyone else had the same idea as there was a long line queued out down the sidewalk! Turns out it was because it was free admission day (no magic Copenhagen card needed). The entrance and garden rotunda is so lovely. We knew we wanted to see the Rodin collection and quickly focused. Also toured the Danish art as well as typical masters on a few of the floors. Then we headed up to the rooftop for a break and look at the city from another vantage point (there is a terrace bar and a few tables for those who'd like to have a refreshment). After, we quickly went around to the back of the Glyptotek for the gardens and Rodin's Thinker statue. This art museum was a surprising delight to visit on our trip.

    Amazing musuem!
    One of best things to do in CPH! The building and layout are beautiful and the collection spans from Egyptian to French painters/sculptors from modern era. We were impressed by amazing artwork and breadth. Highly recommend and remember closed on Monday.

    Great building and view
    Spent just over an hour here. Roof view good towards Tivoli. Roof terrace did say closed but was actually open, think it meant just the bar was closed. Great Rodin collection of sculptures. Winter garden lovely especially sculpture in pond. Building itself inside is wonderful open late one night - check. used the CHC

Loved the palm house, a beautiful place to sit and enjoy. The museum is full of sculptures and art, there isn’t loads of information so be aware you won’t be learning about the objects and their history. The Egyptian part is excellent, and the cafe very nice. We visited towards the end of the day and it wasn’t particularly busy which was nice. Lots to see in every room and a lovely atmosphere overall

What a beautiful museum, amazing statues, best part for us was the Egyptian part including the mummies and sarcophagus, very interesting.

Do not take any backpacks unless you are prepared to put them in a locker which you need to pay for.

Some useful advice - The museum offers free entry on the last Wednesday of each month which is the reason we went, so glad we did though.

Interesting gallery but our visit was spoiled by a rude gallery attendant - so rude, we felt we had no option but to leave the building. During our tour, we were told to stop speaking so loudly. This was in a large gallery where there were only two other visitors on the other side of the room, who were clearly unconcerned. The reason I was speaking loudly/clearly is because my sister is deaf - a fact the rude attendant failed to register. Such a nasty experience - especially in a city where every other Dane we encoutered, without exception, was utterly charming and friendly. Some coaching in customer relations is needed here, I feel, together with some greater awareness of disability. Also, how sad that a member of a gallery's staff feels enthusiastic commentry about the art on display is something to be hushed up :0)

The museum was impressive, and very beautiful, however, it was a tricky process to get into the actual museum due to the bag policy.

At every other museum/castle etc we visited in Denmark, the bag/locker policy was fairly straightforward, however, at this museum you had no other choice but to pay 20DKK to lock your baggage, and don’t expect to get the money back as it is permanently warped into a token.

The museum itself was really busy, so it was hard to comfortably enjoy the exhibitions. It was also exceedingly warm, and as we were dressed for the winter weather outside, we spent most of the time in the museum sitting down trying to cool down.

The exhibitions don’t give a lot of information- it is just room after room of statues.

Rude staff spoiled the experience.

There’s a bag policy of 30 x 30 x 10. Our bags were comfortably within those parameters but the staff ignored their own policy and refused to let us through with them, offering no explanation when we asked why. No pragmatism or flexibility, and overall a terrible approach to customer service; the epitome of jobsworths.

The museum itself is very impressive, but is let down by (some of) its personnel (it would be unfair to assume this applies to all of the staff!).

Wonderful building and great exhibition. Just perfect for a chilly and windy day. The Egyptian part was especially rich but we saw some really nice pieces from Van Gogh, Monet and Gaugein. Recommended!

Fantastic museum with very different exhibitions. You can see anthropological artifacts from the Middle East (where som of them should be delivered back to the original countries - shame on you, Glyptotek!) but also modern art like french impressionist. They have quite a selection of Paul Gaugain (he lived in Copenhagen for a period of his life). They also have interesting epecial exhibitions. Recommended.
