From Roman times to the painting of our time, this museum houses an important collection.
Blend of cultures and arts.
Did you know that the word 'glyptograph' comes from the Greek word meaning 'collection of culture'? And did you know that in Copenhagen you will find a 'glyptograph' founded by the son of the creator of the Carlsberg brewery? If you fancy an entertaining evening with a private collection on the independent art circuit, don't miss the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in the Dantes Plads area. The collection began in 1882, when the entrepreneur began to collect Sumerian, Persian and Assyrian bas-reliefs, alongside Roman, Egyptian, Greek and Etruscan sculptures, that you can now see in this museum. After undergoing renovation over the past few years, the display is organized chronologically from Mediterranean art in 6000 BC to the 4th century Roman Empire, as well as Danish and French painting and sculpture from the 19th and 20th centuries
