Culture Night at the Glyptotek

/ 11. October 2019

Take a break from the hectic city life and visit Copenhagen’s very own oasis at the Glyptotek.

Join us for an evening of sensuous impressions: Explore the antique collection in a new lighting designed by Iben Winther Orton while listening to an oasis-inspired soundtrack developed by The Lake. Discover the newly opened special exhibition The Road to Palmyra, which shows an antique multicultural community set in a busy oasis town and let the children colour the Beauty of Palmyra. You can also enjoy a dinner inspired by the Middle East in the Glyptoteks’ café, Picnic.
