Thorvaldsens museum

Thorvaldsens Museum is a beautiful historic Museum surrounded by a collection of paintings, architecture and beautiful sculptures. Designer and interior photographer Carsten Nielsen visits this beautiful Museum to tell a visual history in geometric design as well as an architectural interior story of this unique museum. Carsten Nielsen creates visual story telling about architecture and design for social media.

Thorvaldsens Museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The characteristic museum building was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) and today 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.
