In Glyptoteket, you have the beauty of architecture and Carl Jacobsen's valuable art collection from ancient times until his contemporary time.
The closest we came to Los Angeles was a visit three years ago to the Getty Museum for European art up to 1900.

It’s temporarily closed due to this year’s situation, which gave me […]

This post is a continuation of my last one on the walk to the museum.

The French paintings are travelling abroad, and the […]
Running a Half Marathon in Dresden was an excellent race and combining this event with seeing as many museums as possible made the trip so much more memorable.
