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.

I am more well-versed in art history than at least 98% of travelers, yet I didn't know Bertel Thorvaldsen until I started planning my trip to Nordic countries. Thorvaldsen is basically the Jacques-Louis David in sculpture! He was definitely a master!! When visiting, focus on...More

An extraordinary place, in an astonishing building, though Thorwaldsen is not my favourite sculptor, the museum dedicated to him and his collection is unmissable.
