If you're visiting Christiansborg Palace then you've got to make time for Thorvaldsens Museum. The buildings are almost next door to each other.

The most beautiful little museum in CPH. You will be amazed by the work of Thorvaldsen. The building alone is worth a visit, the floors and ceiling is different in every room and such a treat for the eyes.

Mildly interesting but pretty much a one-note museum. Easy to navigate with a free audio tour. Free admission with the Copenhagen Card.
