Ny Carlsberg GlyptotekThe Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is an art museum in Copenhagen, Denmark. The collection is built around the personal collection of Carlsberg Beer founder, Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914). The museum houses an eclectic mix of antique sculptures, Impressionist paintings, Danish art, and various other styles. The Etruscan collection is one of the most extensive outside Italy.
The building housing the collections is often praised in its own right for its elegance, including a sub-tropical winter garden at its centre. It is located across the street from the famous Tivoli Gardens at Dantes Plads 7, 1556 K°benhavn V.
