If you love amazing architecture, sculptures, fascinating colour combinations or just a little bit of Danish history, Thorvaldsens Museum is the place to visit. The museum is a tribute to the Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen, who was an international superstar in 19th century Rome. Here he lived and created works of art for the royal families of Europe, the pope and Napoleon for almost forty years before returning to his native city of Copenhagen. On your tour through the museum, you will meet Thorvaldsen’s sculptures in small, brightly coloured rooms with distinctively decorated ceilings and mosaic floors.
Thorvaldsens Museum opened in 1848 as Denmark’s first museum building. Here you will find spectacular rooms, warm and vivid colours and stunning patterns. The museum is one of a kind – an ideal place to make unforgettable memories.
