This museum is a fine collection, mainly of sculptures, piece in marble, bronzes and others. Seems to cover all sorts of periods and there is also some French art collections which we were really Hoping to see but this bit was closed during our visit. There's a good collection of Danish art as well and the details are bilingual. Usual... More

An art gallery with lots of interesting content spread around the rooms of this building. It's not the largest of the gallery's in Copenhagen but the central winter garden or palm court makes an impressive centre piece.

Okay, so the French painting part was closed, but the collection of sculptures is fantastic. Also enjoyed the Danish painters exhibited and the bits of history I gathered. Very nice.

Situated in the very neighbourhood of my Copenhagen address, I had the opportunity to pass by it couple of times but had little time for such an important exibition site. Unfortunately. Next time.

A good way to spend a couple of hours, they don't actually brew carlsberg here anymore but you can see the old equipment and learn about how brewing processes have changed over time. Part of the tour includes seeing the draught horses in the stables. You get 2 free drinks with admission, or can opt for a drink and a... More

I love all things ancient so I was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of Greek, Roman and Egyptian artefacts the museum houses. The highlight of this collection are the Egyptian sarcophagi, mummies and wooden models. They were just breath-taking. Another excellent feature of the museum was the atrium that you enter as you go into the main part of the... More

Did not get a chance to go in the Glyptotek, but walked by it a number of times the few days I was there. It was always before it was opened. I usually saw homeless persons sleeping in the shadow of one of the two statues of lions out front. It seemed to give them a little extra time to... More

...we packed in what we could. The French painting exhibition was closed which was a shame, but we got to see 'the kiss' and some amazing sculptures. Important info: the museum is FREE ON TUESDAYS - a bit pricy on other days so I'd definitely head there on free day if I had my time over. Overall, a good, eclectic... More

An amazing array of statues from Greek, Roman and Egyptian times with information in Danish and English. All housed in a beautiful setting, much more impressive than most museum buildings we have seen. Quite a few interesting works by Danish artists too. Worth a visit if you have even a passing interest in art or architecture.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
