Dedicated to sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen, the Thorvaldsens Museum has some of the best works of the artist and is loved for its collection of sculptures, paintings, sketches, graphic art, medals, personal belongings, letters, personal books and porcelain artefacts. The museum is also the burial place of the artist.

Start you visit from the inner courtyard where the artist was laid down and proceed to see the Egyptian accents including trapezoidal doors and traditional colours. The whole museum is filled with bronze, plaster and marble sculptures along with Greek, Egyptian and Roman paintings, drawing and prints collected by the artist during his travel around the world! Rome was where Bertel Thorvaldsen lived and worked for most of his life and the collection shows just that!

  • ‘The Three Graces with Cupid’ sculpture
  • The Cupid’ sculpture
  • ‘The Shepherd’ sculpture

Thorvaldsens Museum, Copenhagen Reviews - Write a Review

  • Thorvaldsens Museum is beautiful, although it's *just* sculptures. It's located right next to Christiansborg (parliament building) and it's worth visiting. Bertel Thorvaldsen is Danish famous sculpturer that spent most of his adult life in Italy, working for commission there and also in Denmark. His talent is remarkable as seen in the display of the statues. I can't really say more apart from that this is a beautiful museum. You must spend time to visit this place

  • A really good museum. Much bigger than you would expect from the outside, which really shows both the quality, variety and longevity of the works of Bertel Thorvaldsen, one of the best sculptures of Denmark

  • beautiful place. i was a bit disappointed to learn that these arent very old sculptures (those were made during the 19th century if im currect), but this is still excellent art

  • Worth a visit as the sculptures are quite magnificant with its attention to details.

  • One of the best museum experiences in Northern Europe: friendly and professional stuff, great atmosphere inside, and, of course amazing works of art in elegant and modern space.
