The museum features Thorvaldsen's works and personal belongings, such as his own medals, letters, and books.

One of the oldest museums around and largely unchanged, but attractively designed. Unfortunately the sculpture has suffered from the dirt in the atmosphere and it is not easy to clen.

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.
