Beautiful light in Thorvaldsens Museum

After being cooped up inside for so long it is wonderful to see blue skies and have the mercury hit double figures. I looked out the window yesterday morning and decided to catch the bus to Christiansborg and go up the tower for some new views of the city. I joined a small queue, went through the security scanners (which were not set off by my bionic arm) only to find out the lift was awaiting repair. As I live here and can go up anytime I decided not to brave the steep and arduous staircase. I had an hour to spare so I decided to visit Thorvaldsens Museum close by instead.IMG_9715

This is the oldest museum in Denmark and houses only the works of Danish sculptor, Bertel Thorvaldsens. I was my first visit. I doubt I could spend the two hours the ticket office chap recommended but it was a nice forty five minute stroll around.DSC00441

The statues are interesting and the place seems to attract a number of artists and there are chairs and tables dotted around to make sketching more comfortable.DSC00444I found the amazing Spring light on the white sculptures and colourful walls and ceilings very relaxing. I am not sure I would visit often but it is worth the 40kr entrance at least once.thorvalds 2DSC00451 DSC00453 thorvaldsen 1Address: Bertel Thorvaldsens Plads 2, 1213 Copenhagen K
