The Glyptotek is an oasis and refuge in the heart of Copenhagen. Since it opened in 1897, the number of visitors to the museum has increased more than tenfold. A large number of them come on a Tuesday, when admission to the museum is free. Given that we welcome around 6,000 visitors on those days, we can no longer provide them with the experience, which we want to give them and which we know they want – a visit to a museum that also offers space for tranquillity and contemplation.
The high concentration of visitors also places a strain on the museum’s listed buildings and irreplaceable art collection.
Therefore, out of a sense of duty and care, we have been compelled to restructure the scheme. From 15 January, on Tuesdays visitors will have to pay the normal admission fee. Instead, admission to the museum will be free on the last Wednesday of each month, and on selected special occasions. On these free days, admission to the museum’s special exhibitions will also be free of charge. This is something totally new.
Throughout January, there is a special offer: 20% off the price of a season ticket. A season ticket gives the holder the option of visiting the museum whenever they want. It grants the holder access to collections, special exhibitions and exclusive events, and gives them discount in the shop and café.

Discount on season tickets in January:
- Season ticket 1 person: DKK 236 (pays for itself after 1.8 visits)
- Season ticket 1 person + 1 guest: DKK 372 (pays for itself after 1.4 visits)
- Under 27/students: DKK 120 (pays for itself after 1.2 visits)
Buy a season ticket with discount online here or at the museum.
The Glyptotek's exhibitions present both works of art and archaeological objects and offer new angles on life, culture and civilization over 6,000 years.
