Gods Recreated – New Special Exhibition with Sculpture Workshop for Children and Adults
Experience the museum’s latest special exhibition, Gods Recreated, and create your own sculptures in the sculpture workshop within the exhibition. In the workshop, you can imitate the art of past and present sculptors by making sketches and small models of sculptures. Get inspired by the figures in the exhibition or around the museum. Start like real sculptors by making pencil sketches or dive straight into the art of modeling. Both children and adults are welcome.
The exhibition is located in newly arranged exhibition rooms on the ground floor of the castle and in the former wine and coin cellar. The sculpture workshop is open from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM every day during the winter break. The special exhibition Gods Recreated focuses on the many sculptures of gods that are located on the facade of the castle. Back in the early 17th century, King Christian IV had a series of impressive sandstone sculptures created, forming a gallery of gods. 400 years after their creation, all the sculptures are being re-carved, and by 2028, they will be ready to reclaim their places on the castle. Through original sculptures, fragments, models, and the latest re-carved sculptures, the exhibition tells the story of the gods, their significance for Frederiksborg, and follows the process of re-carving.
The exhibition has been created through a close collaboration between Frederiksborg Museum of National History and the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces, with support from the The Carlsberg Foundation and the A.P. Møller and Wife Chastine McKinney Møller’s General Purpose Fund. Read more about the exhibition here.
