With a combination of ancient and modern art, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek offers visitors a unique combination of historical and contemporary installations. 3500 years of art and history from Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman periods encompass the Department of Antiques, whilst Danish and French paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries, including 40 works by Gauguin, can be seen in the Modern department.
Although it is home to an impressive array of paintings, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is primarily a sculpture museum, showcasing an extensive collection of the bronze sculptures of Degas, as well as the most important collection of Rodin sculptures outside France.
