A safe visit at the Glyptotek

We look forward to seeing you all at the Glyptotek . But of course things are going to be a little different from before due to the health situation regarding Corona/COVID-19. Below we provide you with an overview of everything you need to be aware of, not only in terms of looking out for one another, but also – just as importantly – for enjoying a great visit to the Glyptotek.

The Glyptotek takes the safety of its visitors very seriously. We adhere strictly to the guidelines laid down by the Danish Health Authority and have introduced a number of measures to make any visit to the Glyptotek a safe and sensible one.


Please note! The Glyptotek does not require time slot booking.

We encourage everyone to buy their ticket or season ticket online (read more).

We scan tickets and season tickets in the lobby when visitors arrive at the museum.

If you are unable to purchase a ticket online, there is still the option of doing so at the ticket counter.

If you wish to see the special exhibition(s) on a Tuesday, you need to buy a special ticket. Special exhibition tickets are only available for purchase at the museum’s ticket counter.

Face Masks:
Please note that from October 29 it is mandatory to wear a face mask at the museum. When attending events with seating it is permitted to remove the face mask when seated.

Social distancing:
The Glyptotek is a large building with plenty of room for a lot of people. We will constantly make sure that not too many people gather in one place.

We will count all guests as they enter the museum, and again as they leave, in order to ensure that there are never too many people in the museum at any one time.

There are signs and social distancing markers at points where queues might occur. We urge all visitors to help by maintaining a safe distance. We will of course also do our bit to ensure adherence to the guidelines.

Hand sanitiser is available, and visitors can wash their hands regularly in the museum’s toilets.

At the Glyptotek our cleaners are being even more meticulous than usual. Surfaces subject to frequent contact are a particular priority.

Picnic – the Museum Café:
Please note that Picnic follows the government guidelines for restaurants, making it mandatory to wear a face mask in the café when not seated.

To reduce the number of contact surfaces, we urge our visitors to avoid using the cloakroom as far as possible. This means, for instance, that you should think carefully about what bag you bring to the museum.

Bags measuring more than 30x30x10 cm are not permitted in the museum. If you cannot avoid bringing a larger bag, then of course you may still use the cloakroom.

Should you have any questions or require any guidance during your visit, we will be more than happy to assist you. At the same time, please remember to maintain safe social distance from members of the museum’s staff.

Recommendations from the Danish Health Authorities

We request all our visitors to comply with the government’s recommendations and instructions:

If you have symptoms – even mild symptoms – of Corona/COVID-19, stay at home.

Wash your hands frequently – or use hand sanitiser.

Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. Wash or sanitise your hands immediately afterwards.

Maintain a distance of at least 1 metres from other guests and museum staff.

Maintain a distance of at least 2 metres in situations where there may be an increased risk of droplet transmission, or if you are in close proximity to people who require special attention (e.g. the elderly).
