Very interesting and amazing to see all of the sculptures by Thorvaldsen. I rented (for free) headphones to listen to the story behind the sculptures, which was a good option. If you love museums this is a great stop.

We were there on a wednesday. It was free admission on Wednesday. Hooray. We left our backpacks and coats in the cloakroom and wandered around the museum starting on the main floor. There were so many wonderful sculptures in that museum ranging from Greek mythology...More

This is one of Copenhagen's oldest museums, and just the building itself is a real treat to visit. I admired the architecture and the play of the sunlight and shades on the pastel colours of the walls...the sculptures are sublime, too.

Very nice building and a very impressing collection of the masterpieces made by Thorvaldsen. Many of them way bigger than you imagine.

The museum is OK, but it's not that bad if you do not get to see it during your stay in CPH. There is one day when you can enter for free.

Easy to navigate and like nowhere you have ever been before, this special place and every detail of the experience of going there becomes more and more important the longer you stay away from it. Incredible interiors.

Specially built to host Thorvaldsens sculptural works, which are kind of replication of greek art. Still, some of theme are exciting with their exuberance of forms.
