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 is such a wonderful museum. Architecture and sculpture collide to provide a magical experience. We were lucky enough to pick a day with good weather and not many people which made the experience really special. If you're in Copenhagen for a few days you have to visit this fantastic place.
One of the most amazing museums you can visit! Such a pleasure to walk around these holy walls. Great piece of art, nice stuff. Was so cool to be there! Can absolutely recommend it.
