  • Very interesting museum. I always wondered about how marble statues were made. Thorvaldsens’ collection has so many stunning pieces. I also appreciated that since this was our third museum of the day, there were plenty of benches to sit and admire the works. Really beautiful creations.
  • If you love sculptures then this is the place to come apart from Glyptotek. From Apollo, Venus to the modern ones, it has all the beautiful sculptures and it will take your breath away!
