Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is a Copenhagen museum founded by the Carlsberg brewing family, with sculpture being the main attraction, but they also have great French Impressionist paintings, a tropical garden in the main rotunda, a nice cafe, and today, a surprise choral group in the marble-columned music hall singing heavenly music straight out of the Middle Ages. I wasn’t the only one sketching there today- a drawing class commenced in the Egyptian room, and individual sketchers occupied the Classical Antiquities Hall.
The Glyptotek encourages artistic visitors and even hands out folding seats. I beamed with gratitude, sat down, and drew an Athenian Soldier, circa 330 BC, followed by the most amazing mother and child free-for-all ever sculpted.

What a great place, and wow what a sculpture. Great work capturing it and a fascinated baby in that photo!
