A hidden gem just around the corner from Christanborg and the National museum. The size of the Sculpture is impressive to say the least and information provided was brilliant. Staff were brilliant too!

The building is also magnificent, extremely long corridors around a central courtyard, and vaulted ante rooms with beautifully painted...More

A very good museum with an excellent audio guide, it is free so use it!! Interesting stories about the individual sculptures. An amazing collection. The artist’s personal collection of coins, upstairs, is also amazing. Worth a visit to for any fan of art and history.
