Thorvaldsens Museum - Review

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!

Some of the highlights include:

  • ‘The Three Graces with Cupid’ sculpture
  • The Cupid’ sculpture
  • ‘The Shepherd’ sculpture
  • ‘Young Girl Dancing’ sculpture
  • A portrait of the artist painted by Floriano Pietrocola

Thorvaldsens Museum, Copenhagen Reviews

  • Good collection of art, especially oil on canvas and sculpture. There's also a very large coin collection, if that's your thing. Also, the space is well appointed with elaborate ceilings. Figure half a day to go through it all.

  • Get the City Pass or combo pass. The christ room is absolutely amazing. Worth a visit if you are visiting the palace already.

  • I went there exclusively to see the original plaster of the Christus. I was impressed. I had seen a couple replicas of it made for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is my favorite sculpture of Christ. He is presented as the resurrected Jesus in a majestic and yet humble manner. The gallery has the twelve apostles as well. Thorvaldsen was truly an inspired artist.

  • Perhaps not as comprehensive as the national museum or Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, still very much worth the time to walk around.

  • Very intresting place for people who interested in art. Different statues for different historical period. On Wednesday it's free of charge.
