Thorvaldsens Museum stands apart from all other houses in Copenhagen with its large decorations. The facades are ochre coloured with white, blue and green stripes and on these you find a pictorial frieze with numerous figures, running nearly all the way around the house.

Inside, the walls are covered in deep, saturated colours, and each room has its individually decorated ceiling with mythological motifs, beautiful ornaments and a myriad of extraordinary details and specially designed mosaic floors.
