One of the best places to spend time in Copenhagen on a rainy day Apr 17, 2016
Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is one of the best places to spend time in Copenhagen on a rainy day. Sometime last year I even decided to buy a yearcard because it was earned back after a couple of visits - and even that most of the exhibition is the same almost every day, there still is a lot dedicated exhibitions, which are well worth visiting.

The building itself is beautiful and there are a lot of really beautiful old artifacts displayed in quite tasty displays. The museum provides you with great photo opportunities as well. The museum is really popular and on certain days it can be quite crowded. The museum also have a nice cafe, which unfortunately also is quite popular.

The museum is well worth visiting.

Worth visiting, if have Copenhagen Card and on the day it is open late Apr 23, 2015
Located across the street from Tivoli Gardens, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is an arts museum that has collections from different time periods.

For those interested in Egyptian artifacts, this place is worth checking out. While not nearly as extensive as some of the other well-known museums throughout Europe, I do think it does provide one interesting experience. Particularly, when you go down the stairs, and into a room of Egyptian coffins. If you are the only person there, it can be a bit scary, as the room is dimly lit, and the faces did give me the creeps.

There are also Greek and Roman collections in the Ancient Mediterranean gallery, with a bunch of statues and busts. Worth checking out, though not much, in terms of descriptions.

It also has a nice collection of Danish paintings and sculptures. The landscape paintings and the Mother Denmark one are definitely worth seeing. Unfortunately, there are no English descriptions here as well, at least not on the wall. There was suppose to be a handout when entering, but it was missing when I was there.

There are other galleries, like the French Sculptures and Painting, but I did not have enough time to see them. So you definitely have to pick and choose which ones that interest you the most.

And there is the Winter Garden, which does look nice, with its palm trees and fountain. But nothing really special, to be honest.

This museum does have a respectable collection of artifacts. The Egyptian one is nice to check out, and the only one that does have some English descriptions.

I would say, this museum is worth visiting on the day it is closes late (I believe it is currently Thursdays, when it closes at 10pm). And only if you have a Copenhagen Card, as I did think admission was pricey. It is not a must-see, but at the same time, those with interest in Egyptian artifacts, should find this place enjoyable.
