Don’t think I had ever been to a purpose built museum dedicated to a single artist before. This is one. I only visited because I got free admission with my ticket to The Museum of Copenhagen. So glad I did visit. I was amazed at the scale and detail of the exhibits. I knew very little about Bertel Thorvaldsen before my visit but please don’t be put off by that if you’re the same. This was a significant collection of sculptures including religious and political leaders of the late 18th and early 19th Centuries and classical statues. There is also a big display of the artist’s own collections (furniture, artefacts from the ancient world, coins) which many people will find interesting. I am so glad I visited this museum especially as I hadn’t planned to do so.

The museum is dedicated to the works of famous Danish sculptor, Bertel Thorvaldsen. There is a lot more than sculptures. Wander through the several chambers on the upper level.

Oldest public museum in Denmark: devoted to the neoclassicistic artist Bertel Thorvaldsen who donated his life’s works and collection to his native city, this museum from 1848 is the oldest museum in the world devoted to one artist and sublime in having different floors and ceilings to set off the marble statues or statues in plaster-of- paris.from outside it is a festive building with its friese showing Thorvaldsen’s homecoming in 1838.

A quiet and beautiful oasis in the centre of Copenhagen. Even if you are not a fan of sculptures you should make a visit to this museum. The building and the interior decorations are awesome and the sculptures are presented in a very nice way in the smaller rooms. Only thing that could be better is the information about Thorvaldsen’s life.
