The Royal Cast Collection


Discover thousands of plaster sculptures and explore naked figures, pagan gods and Christian art.


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" at Toldbodgade 40, Copenhagen. 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.

Discover naked figures
At The Royal Cast Collection you can explore thousands of naked figures, which unveils the stories about everything from pagan gods to Christian stories.

You can also challenge your creativity and try your hand with plaster cast. The last Sunday of every month, you can take a guided tour of the historic warehouse and travel back to antiquity with the archaeologist.

We also show film - for example about the collection and its history.
