The room with the Christ Savior and Apostles is stunning and worth the visit. Second favorites were Copernicus and Gutenberg. Audio guide is excellent but perhaps a bit long winded on the mythology descriptions. Audio guide is free but you do need to leave an...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

This museum is a place you wish to see again. Not only the sculptures, but also the paintings and collections of Thorvaldsens personal objects. The museum is rarely too busy, and you can profit of a free entrance on tuesdays.

Very interesting and amazing to see all of the sculptures by Thorvaldsen. I rented (for free) headphones to listen to the story behind the sculptures, which was a good option. If you love museums this is a great stop.

This is one of Copenhagen's oldest museums, and just the building itself is a real treat to visit. I admired the architecture and the play of the sunlight and shades on the pastel colours of the walls...the sculptures are sublime, too.
