The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, located in Denmark, is one of the most popular museums in the area. Its founder, Carl Jacobsen, was the renowned founder of the Carlsberg Brewery and was also one of Denmark's most influential art patrons. Thanks to the immense profits from his brewing business, he successfully collected thousands of artworks and archaeological artifacts. Among the treasures are ancient Greek and Roman statues, Egyptian mummies, and classic works by French Impressionist masters such as Gauguin, Manet, Degas, Monet, Cézanne, Renoir, and Van Gogh, showcasing the collector's taste and talent. Established in 1897, the museum's first building was designed by famous Danish architect Vilhelm Dahlerup, and the Winter Garden was completed in 1906. In 1996, architect Henning Larsen added a new wing dedicated to French painting, bringing more creative elements to the museum. With the opening of the "Ancient Mediterranean" exhibition in 2006, visitors can delve into the history of ancient cultures and early Middle Eastern empires. During your visit, in addition to the museum's art collection, we also recommend taking a break at the famous café, enjoying the beautiful atmosphere of the Winter Garden, or going up to the rooftop terrace to admire the breathtaking view of Copenhagen, enhancing your overall experience.
