Thorvaldsens Museum is one of the most beautiful buildings in Denmark and was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844). The museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The characteristic building still looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago.

Thorvaldsens Museum also contains Thorvaldsen's drawings and sketches for sculptures and reliefs. In addition Thorvaldsen was a passionate collector, so the museum also exhibits his extensive collections of paintings from his own time and collections of artworks and objects from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity. The museum also shows changing exhibitions that go into greater depth with aspects of the permanent collections, including contemporary art.Open: Tuesday - Sunday 10am-5pm Your ticket is valid for 48 hours and the offer is valid in 2017.

Thorvaldsens Museum and Nikolaj Kunsthal are both part of the City of Copenhagen’s History & Art organisation.
