The Glyptotek covers an area of many thousands of square metres, making it the perfect setting for visitors to move about at a safe distance from each other.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Glyptotek. We have compiled a list of all the things you need to be aware of when it comes not only to looking out for one another, but also 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.

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.

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.
