GLYPTOTEKET “Sometimes getting a break from it all is the tonic we all need to make the heart beat just that little bit faster” We love spending time in museums, awakening the senses, and broading our horizons. Beauty as they say is in the eye of the beholder, and art is no different. I love how something can just move you and make your heart skip a few beats, and something else for others. There is no right or wrong when it comes to art, and we have always visited museums & galleries everywhere we go. The kids love the anticipation of going somewhere new, and seeing something they have never seen before. It is fun to hear their opinion on the subject, whether they liked it or not, what they enjoyed about it, what they didn’t and so on. Copenhagen has many great museums - and we are frequent visitors, but one of our firm favourites is the beautiful museum “GLYPTOTEKET.” The Glyptotek is a museum dedicated to the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean as well as Danish and French art from the 19th century. It was the aim of the founder, brewing magnate Carl Jacobsen, to enrich his fellow citizens with art of international stature.It was his conviction that works of art should not be arranged according to scientific systems, as in a museum, but that they should speak directly to the individual visitor. The settings at the Glyptotek are stunning, and impressive. You walk around almost speechless looking at artifacts and sculptures that are many hundreds of years old. We are BIG fans.
