World-renowned Tivoli Gardens, a Danish icon in the heart of Copenhagen, features thousands of flowers, a carousel of tiny Viking ships, carnival-type games, a Ferris wheel, and the largest roller coaster in Denmark. The Nationalmuseet (National Museum), housed in an old royal palace, came into being in 1650 as the "Royal chamber of Curiosities." Now one of Scandinavia's most interesting museums, its exhibits include a plank-built war canoe from around 300 B.C., Renaissance-era royal tapestries, the Royal Collection of Coins and Medals, artefacts from the Greenland Eskimo and the Papua New Guinea cultures, and stunning ecclesiastical art.
Copenhagen's Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Denmark's largest museum, displays paintings and sculpture from the Middle Ages to the present. It includes works by a variety of Flemish and Dutch masters, but also Italian and German works of art: Rembrandt, Rubens and more. And the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, behind the Tivoli Gardens, is one of Europe's great art museums, funded by the owner of Carlsberg beer. Including both modern and ancient paintings and sculpture, it features works by Rodin and Van Gogh as well as ancient Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman art.
