Thorvaldsens Museum Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful sculptures and art pieces by this talented Danish Neoclassical Sculptor. There are also wonderful art collections of this artist on display as well. Very much enjoyed. A great place to be, particularly on a rainy day. I am Uploading a few photos now. Hope you would like them. Thanks.
A good place for art and sculpture buffs. The museum was quite and serene. There was no entry ticket on that day and the place looked majestic. As I don't have any background related to art and it's history, the rating is based solely on the ambiance and the attitude of present staff.
Take your time, wander slow, grab the audio tour if you can. They're just iPods you walk through with but they are very informative. The work is absolutely stunning and you will want to give yourself an hour or two. The tickets also work for the more modern museum housed in St. Nicholas Church as well.
A huge museum of marble statues and stunning painted roofs. Definitely a good stop for those who enjoy classical sculptures and techniques. It will keep you busy for at least an hour and a bit
Super interesting! This guy was really amazingly productive during his years, and captured his subject in great lifelikeness. The museum also enhanced the experience with small rooms with great light setups
