  • 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.
