News from the Glyptotek


Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is run as an independent institution which receives funding from
the New Carlsberg Foundation and the State.

The collection

The Glyptotek’s superlative collection contains over 10,000 works of art and archaeological objects and offers ever new perspectives on life, culture and civilization through a time span of 6,000 years.


As a research institution Glyptoteket has a special duty to generate new knowledge against the background of the museum’s collection. Research constitutes an important part of daily museum work and often forms the basis for new exhibitions and publications.
