The marble sculptures are excellent. I found the audio guide irritating and pretentious. Unless you are really into the marble, keep this for an opportunity to get in from the rain, or to fill in the end of a day.

I really enjoyed this, surprisingly, but it may not be to everyone's taste. The gallery holds an extensive collection from Thorvaldsen's works in marble and/or plaster often copies of statues located either in Copenhagen, notably the cathedral, or elsewhere in Europe.. Many of the works...More

I almost missed this museum hidden in plain sight next to Christiansborg Palace. Ordinarily sculpture isn't my favorite but this museum had a wonderful collection of work by Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen with helpful descriptions in each room. Some of the sculptures are quite magnificent...More

This museum was a real surprise! Bertel Thorvaldsens produced a some beautiful statues, many based on mythology, wonderful animals and some busts of noteable figures in history.

The room with the massive statues is amazing as well as the room with Christ and the disciples. Truly beautiful. However, the rest of the work is not well shown and was not very interesting to us. If in the area, worth a short visit....More

It is hard to describe a place that filled with so many wonderland pieces of sculpture and paintings. Thorvaldsen did many great sculptures of various themes from Greek mythology, Christian art, and people of his day. This is a good place to spend two hours.
