  • Extraordinary museum filled with the work of this talented sculptor. The scale of many statues and friezes is impressive and there is a free and informative audio guide you can download from the app....  more

  • The museum is small and there was no description of the artwork. The wifi was not working so we couldn't use the app. Not worth the time unless you're a big Thorvaldsens fan.

  • Great Museum, very nice exhibitions and an interesting character! A little bit unfortunate (in my opinion) that there is only an audio guide for single pieces of his work. A bit of textual explanation or some details would have been nice.
  • Place worth seeing. I would suggest going on Wednesday (it is free then). It's possible to take the audioguide. Very helpful staff.
  • wonderful statues, a lot of history behind making them is displayed on every art piece. there is a lot of to know about Thordvaldsen as well, not just about his art or art collections. the staff is also very helpful. there is a lot of space to hang your coats or place your belongings.
  • Nice and lot of master piece of the artist very interesting. Lot of things to learn about his works and life
  • Visited on a sunday morning, was the only visitor there. Amazing statuary, if you are into antiquity. The serenity in the jesus hall was something else. You could feel the benevolence and greatness of god himself radiating from the statues (and I'm not a religious person)
