Thorvaldsens Museum

Recommended
Denmark's most famous sculptor, Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844), spent a great part of his life in Rome and was welcomed home as a hero when he returned to his native country. Built in a deliberately neo-Classical style in homage to the artist, this museum houses a number of his sculptures, as well as his personal collection of works, which provides a fascinating insight into the art of his time.
