We have introduced a number of measures to make any visit to the Glyptotek a safe and sensible one. Read more here.

Safari for kids

Lions, fish and floors of lava!

Take your children on a trip to the Glyptotek, where you can go on a safari together and explore the museum’s many animals. Find fish in the jungle, solve puzzles, roar with the lions and meet the strong hero Herkules on the safari tour through the Glyptotek’s halls.

Ask for the free safari booklet at the ticket counter (the safari is an individual activity without a guide). For children from 4 years.


Summer Concerts

From August through September a number of Denmark’s leading classical ensembles will be giving concerts at the Glyptotek’s beautiful Central Hall.

You can look forward to romantic, dramatic, spell-binding and joyous notes performed by world class musicians – among the heroes and gods of ancient Rome.

Guided Tours

Every Sunday and some Thursdays during the summer you can join a guided tour at the Glyptotek.

Please note that due to Corona/COVID-19, we can only offer guided tours for groups of up to 10 people. Tickets cannot be booked in advance, but must be picked up from the ticket office on the day.

Picnic in the Glyptotek Garden

Picnic, the Glyptotek café, is expanding and opening a little branch in the Glyptotek’s back garden.

Throughout the summer (from 1 July – 31 August) it will serve delicious coffee, croissants, lunch, cake and cold drinks in one of the most beautiful gardens in Copenhagen.

Here, guests can enjoy their refreshments amidst sculptures and summer flowers.

The garden, located just behind the museum, is a bit of a hidden gem.

Thursday on the Roof

It’s ‘Thursday on the Roof’ time again – a chance to enjoy cold drinks and delicious food in the beautiful setting of the Glyptotek.

Bring your friends, take in the amazing views of the Tivoli Gardens and the roofs of Copenhagen, and chill to the summer sounds of a bespoke Future Female Sounds mixtape.

Thursday on the Roof events on the following dates: Thursday 9 July, Thursday 23 July, Thursday 30 July, Thursday 6 August, Thursday 13 August and Thursday 3 September.
