About
The Royal Cast Collection is part of the SMK, but you'll find the over 2000 casts, which make up the collection, at the Westindian Warehouse. Originally the warehouse was built to accommodate sugar and rum. But in 1984 the Royal Cast Collection moved in and turned the warehouse into an exhibitionspace. The Royal Cast Collection will be open for special events, so you can explore thousands of naked figures, which unveils the stories about everything from pagan gods to Christian stories.

The area
Neighbourhood: Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.

When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.

On the way to the Mermaid, we observe this wonderful building of red bricks and the extraordinary statues outside.

A statue of David (not Michelangelo's original one, though) proudly stands in front of the Royal Cast museum.
While the museum was closed by the time we got there, the statue was lovely and its greenish hue was beautifully contrasted with the reddish bricks of the building behind it.

This 3 floored museum with limited Egyptian collection is a good place to visit. It is free, near Nyhavn and little mermaid. There is place for artistes to draw; there are really big statues and English speaking staff. It is more about sculptures not paintings or anything else yet still the signs and the interactive audios are in Danish language only.

To the Danish Minister of Culture:
Give this royal collection a budget and its own proper museum building!
The royal casts collection is unique in European Culture and deserves a better faith. What a wonderful collection to see together. If I where an art student, I would have spent a good part of my practical study time here. I am very happy to have visited the collection. It made my trip to Copenhagen worthwhile!

As we walked along the waterfront from the Amalienborg Palace heading to the little mermaid, we had a pleasant surprise. After encountering a large statue of David, we discovered the Royal Cast Collection in the building behind it. We were privileged to see a fabulous display of casts, including numerous items on loan from the British Museum having been removed from the Parthenon in Athens. And all of this FREE! Don't expect to see a formal display as you may view in a large gallery, but an amazing expedition of a large spectrum of artwork from around the world. And no other tourists in sight! And another bonus - free bathrooms!

One of the largest collection of plaster casts in Europe, the Royal Cast Collection offers a fantastic insight into classical & Renaissance sculpture and into the making of plaster casts.

Entry is free and the staff of the gallery are happy to talk to visitors about the collection. Tours are available in English but opening hours are limited.

The layout and spiral staircase would make visiting with a buggy difficult (I didn't notice if there was a lift).

The gallery also features installations of contemporary sculpture, and is well worth the visit, even if you're not particularly interested in ancient sculpture but fancy something a bit different.
