French masterpieces

Experience one of Denmark’s finest collections of French art.

The Glyptotek’s collection of French paintings is once again on display. Come see masterpieces of paintings by the likes of Morisot, Monet, van Gogh, Renoir, Manet, Courbet and Rousseau.

You can also see the small thematic exhibition entitled The Small Salon – Paul Gauguin and the Danish Connection that casts the spotlight on the French artist Paul Gauguin’s residence in Copenhagen (1884–1885) and tells the story of the artist’s wife, Mette Gauguin (née Gad).


The Glyptotek brings the secrets of art to life with sound.

Throughout the Glyptotek, you can find 18 different listening stations to whisk you off on sensory trips to ancient Egypt, the Roman Empire and 19th-century Paris. Learn all about the art, history and architecture of the Glyptotek and get answers to questions you never thought of asking.

There are listening stations for both children and adults.

You can pick up a small LISTEN! guide at the ticket office.

Listen! was made possible with generous funding from Bikubenfonden.


Taste the new spring menu in the museum café Picnic overlooking the lovely Winter Garden.

Try the salad with new potatoes, rye bread with riellette of smoked lumfish or enjoy a delicous lemon pie or chocolate cake.


The Glyptotek’s architecture offers a richness of details and stories. The complex listed building is a sumptuous collage of architectural styles, atmospheres and sensory impressions that provides a spectacular experience.

Discover the architecture guide in the Glyptotek’s app. Find it in App Store or Google Play.


May you play at the Glyptotek? Definitely!

We have developed our very own Glypto Games that invite you to experience the art and architecture in new ways, calm down, concentrate, and maybe they’ll also make you laugh. Both children and adults can join in on the fun.

Find the Glypto Games on paper at the ticket counter.

The games can be adapted depending on your mood and the age of the children.
