The brewer's collection



The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (Glypto-, from the Greek root glyphein, to carve and theke, a storing-place) is an art museum housing the personal collection of Carl Jacobsen (1842–1914), the son of the founder of the Carlsberg Breweries.

Jacobsen donated his collection to the Danish State and the City of Copenhagen on condition that they provided a suitable building for its exhibition. This museum is now a premier destination for locals and tourists alike.
