We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It feels very open, and has an extensive collection of Greek and Roman sculptures. We especially enjoyed the hall of Roman Heads, on account of its weirdness. A fine small collection of impressionist art as well. Also, don't miss the...More

French paintings collection in this museum is mediocre. Don’t waist your time: it’s a lot of wonderful things to see in Copenhagen.

This building suffers from poor signage and a useless orientation map. Apart from that it's just a great visit with amazing interiors, Egyptology and French impressionist paintings amongst miles of classical sculpture. A must for art and historic architecture lovers

I visited this place not knowing how many famous artists' works I would see. It is on 4 levels, and there are guide folios to help you find particular artists' works. There is also a beautiful park-like atrium area with lots of things to see.

We enjoyed our visit of the Glypoteket, but we a bit underwhelmed. There are plenty of greek statues, but the impressionist art is limited. The museum itself is beautiful, but the content was not particularly impressive.
