The Royal Cast Collection is part of the SMK, but you'll find the over 2000 casts, which make up the collection, at the Westindian Warehouse. Originally the warehouse was built to accommodate sugar and rum. But in 1984 the Royal Cast Collection moved in and turned the warehouse into an exhibitionspace. The Royal Cast Collection will be open for special events, so you can explore thousands of naked figures, which unveils the stories about everything from pagan gods to Christian stories.

This 3 floored museum with limited Egyptian collection is a good place to visit. It is free, near Nyhavn and little mermaid. There is place for artistes to draw; there are really big statues and English speaking staff. It is more about sculptures not paintings...More

To the Danish Minister of Culture: Give this royal collection a budget and its own proper museum building! The royal casts collection is unique in European Culture and deserves a better faith. What a wonderful collection to see together. If I where an art student,...More

As we walked along the waterfront from the Amalienborg Palace heading to the little mermaid, we had a pleasant surprise. After encountering a large statue of David, we discovered the Royal Cast Collection in the building behind it. We were privileged to see a fabulous...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
