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

I love going to museums when they are not overcrowded. Thorvaldsen's Museum is a bit off the main drag (but not by much) so you won't encounter hoards of visitors but it's an easy walk from the Tivoli area. The museum includes the sculptor's marble...More

Somehow, I missed that this museum houses plaster casts of Thorvaldsens major works - I thought we would be viewing marbles. Surprise! Collecting plaster casts used to be big business for museums in the 19th and early 20th centruy, but then fell out of favor....More

Liked the bright blue ceiling, the decorated bowlike ceilings and some of the paintings and statues. Lots of statues have a black hue as if they might benefit from a good cleaning, but probably to frail to do that.More
