Expert review of Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

A formidable art history lesson in a Victorian glasshouse.

This handsome museum and art gallery, built by a beer magnate, has much to offer, from the excellent collecton of classical statuary - Roman, Greek and Etruscan - to a valuable selection of Impressionist and 19th-century French masterpieces from the likes of Gauguin, Monet and van Gogh, plus some rare Degas bronzes.

Price advice: 

It's 60 krone for adults and free for children under 18. Admission is free for all on Sundays.

Expert tips: 
The café in the light-flooded and handsome glasshouse is an excellent place for refreshments, especially in winter.
Check out the programme of events, which may include free chamber music recitals in the low season.
Free entry on Sundays.
