It is hard to describe a place that filled with so many wonderland pieces of sculpture and paintings. Thorvaldsen did many great sculptures of various themes from Greek mythology, Christian art, and people of his day. This is a good place to spend two hours.

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
