Practical information

Cloakrooms and bags
Cloakrooms with lockers can be found in the basement when you arrive at the main entrance. Use of the lockers is free of charge – simply key in an individual code which you will use again when collecting your possessions.

For security reasons larger bags (exceeding the maximum size of 30 x 30 x 10 cm.) should be left in the cloakroom by the ticket desk. Our attendants will always be helpful, just as they will decide which bags can be brought into the exhibition areas or not.

You can also be given a smaller bag for your things, by the guards.


Food and drink
Food and drink are only to be consumed in our designated areas, typically in the Café. We ask you to kindly leave any drinks and bottles you have brought with you in the cloakroom next to the ticket desk.

Food and drink you have brought with you can be consumed at the long tables in the basement by the cloakroom and ticket desk.


Prams and pushchairs
During your visit you can borrow, free of charge, a pushchair in the museum’s entrance hall. Because of entry, exit and security considerations visitors may not use their own prams or pushchairs. Smaller pushchairs can be left in the basement at the cloakroom and ticket desk, while prams must be parked outside the museum’s entrance: our attendants in the entrance hall will gladly lend you a lock.


Baby changing
You will find one baby-changing area in the basement by the cloakroom and ticket desk and another at the entrance to the French Painting (Henning Larsen Building).


Photos and Film
As a visitor Glyptoteket you are more than welcome to take pictures and to film. However, since we are a museum, you are requested to show consideration to other visitors as well as to the art itself. For this reason certain rules apply, which you may benefit from reading before your visit.

Accessibility for the Disabled

The Glyptotek is an old building and subject to a listed building which means that the museum is not optimally appointed for, for instance, wheelchair users. Naturally we do what we can to make the museum as accessible as possible for all. There is, accordingly, access to most exhibitions, either by use of a handicap lift or normal lift.


Free Access
If you are a disabled person, entrance to the museum is always free. On production of a Companion Card you can also take a companion in with you free of charge.


Arrival
As a wheelchair user/ person with reduced mobility you can access the museum in two ways, depending on which exhibition areas you wish to visit.

If you wish to visit French Painting, Greek and Roman Sculpture, Egypt, The Ancient Mediterranean, the Winter Garden and the Central Hall, please arrive at the side entrance at Tietgensgade 25 during the museum’s opening hours. Here you can ring the doorbell and come into direct contact with the Glyptotek’s personnel. If any trouble should occur, please contact us on T (+45) 3341 8141, so we can provide assistance.

If you wish to visit Danish and French Sculpture, The Danish Golden Age, Edgar Degas. Sculpture and The Café, please use the doorbell by the entrance at the corner of Dantes Plads and Niels Brocks Gade. Here you will have direct access to the Ticket Desk and the Cloakroom in the basement via the lift.

Groups of wheelchair users are asked to contact the museum before their visit.


At the Museum
Manual wheelchairs, walking sticks and crutches can all be borrowed at the museum. These can be delivered to those who require them by the attendants in the Entrance Hall.

Please note that certain areas of the museum can only be visited if you are able to negotiate individual steps unassisted, or with the aid of a companion.  Our attendants will do their best to guide and assist.


Accessible toilets
Accessible toilets are located in the basement by the Cloakroom and Ticket Desk as well as by the entrance to French Painting (The Henning Larsen Building).

See the museum plan, which has details of wheelchair access


Visually impaired
If you are visually impaired, you may, subject to prior arrangement, be allowed to touch selected sculptures. Contact us on T (+45) 3341 8141, so we can provide assistance and guidance. If you visit without notifying us beforehand we will still help you the best that we can.

You are welcome to bring your guide dog with you provided it is kept on a lead.
