The Glyptotek is a museum of 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.

In 1902 Carl Jacobsen established the New Carlsberg Foundation to create the economic basis for the running of the Glyptotek. The museum is run by the Danish state and the New Carlsberg Foundation as an independent institution.
