This museum is sort of "hidden:" by the Christiansborg complex but is worth seeking out. The sculptures on display are often grand and imposing but there are also small detailed pieces. The man was an immense talent but also trained and developed a number of...More

Thorvaldsen obviously was an outstanding sculptor, whose jaw-dropping oeuvre can be seen in this remarkable museum. A pity that the quantity of works is rather limited. However, this makes a visit to the museum anything but tiresome. The explanations of the audio guide are also...More

A hidden gem just around the corner from Christanborg and the National museum. The size of the Sculpture is impressive to say the least and information provided was brilliant. Staff were brilliant too!

Excellent museum with a fantastic collection of sculptures. Some of Thorvaldsen's work is really stunning. There are also the largest statues I've ever seen indoors here. The building is also magnificent, extremely long corridors around a central courtyard, and vaulted ante rooms with beautifully painted...More

A very good museum with an excellent audio guide, it is free so use it!! Interesting stories about the individual sculptures. An amazing collection. The artist’s personal collection of coins, upstairs, is also amazing. Worth a visit to for any fan of art and history.
