Museums

 

Denmark’s rich history, art and culture take the centre stage at different city museums. Learn about the life of Søren Kierkegaard at the Museum of Copenhagen, or surround yourself with modern art in the former St Nicholas Church - now home to Nikolaj Kunsthal. Paintings from the Danish Golden Age also await at the museum dedicated to Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. Check entry prices and exhibitions online before you visit. 

Thorvaldsen’s Museum is the first public museum in Denmark, and it houses the art and collections of the Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen.
