We invite to events all year round. We mark anniversaries and hold various events for children and adults. Our events deal with Bertel Thorvaldsen and his art from the Nysø era, the golden age, the Stampe family and manor culture.
Read more about our current events here.


Guided tours

You can book guided tours for larger or smaller groups all year round. On our guided tours, you get closer to history when one of our experienced tour guides tells about Thorvaldsen's art and time with the Stampe family on Nysø.
You have the opportunity to combine the tour of the museum with a garden walk. Here you also get a more thorough history of the manor Nysø, the original baroque garden and Christine and Henrik Stampe's garden. In addition, you get the story of those of the great personalities of the golden age who also came here in the golden age together with Thorvaldsen, including H.C. Andersen, who among other things found inspiration for fairy tales such as "The Nightingale" and "Ole Lukøje", N.F.S. Grundtvig, Adam Oehlenschläger and B.S. Ingemann.

Guided tour of the museum (1 hour): DKK 300 + DKK 50 per guest
Guided tour + garden walk (1.5 hours): DKK 400 + DKK 65 per guest

There can basically be 20 people per tour. If you have more, contact our tour coordinator, Carsten Honoré, and hear how your visit can be organized. Carsten is also helpful with city walks in Præstø.

The museum shop

In the museum shop you can easily find your next hostess gift or treat yourself to a memory from you visit. We have a small cast with Thorvaldsen's self-portrait, books, posters, postcards and merchandise, all of which relate to the story of Thorvaldsen, the golden age, manor culture and the circle of people around the Stampe family.

As something new, we have got golden age coffee and tea in the shop. Our Golden Age coffee is whole fine arabica beans from Latin America; the new coffee district of the golden age. The coffee bag comes with a little story from Thorvaldsen's 70th birthday, which he celebrated on Nysø. Our Golden Age tea is a pure large-leaved Indian Assam tea, which was highly modern and served on the mansions from the 1840s. With the tea bag follows a little story about when H.C. Andersen was invited to tea with Christine Stampe.

The coffee and tea bags are obvious hostess gifts.

Delivery throughout the country. Order on tel. +45 22 84 62 66 or at
