I've found some pics of the interior on the forum:

Could anyone identify the figures on the portraits in Queen Louise's drawing room ???

I found these great links, with a plan of the Amalienborg museum and a lot of pics of the collection in it  :) :) They're in Danish, but that doesn't matter...
On these you can find a 'treasures of Amalienborg tour'. A note: the thirth and fourth link are new !!

A historical photograph of Queen Louise's salon (dronning Louises dagligstue) in about 1908-1910. I suppose the situation/interior in this room is today much the same.

No the location has changed. The Amalianborg Palce was made up of 4 identical buildings. The original location is now lived by either the Queen or the Crown Prince. They moved it to another wing and recreated the rooms using original furniture and knicknacks from the apartments of Queen Louise.

Does anyone have photos of King Christian IX's study in the museum ? And what's to see in his study ?

The Amalienborg Museum is made up of recreated rooms and gift galleries. The studies of Christian IX, Ferderick VIII, Christian X and Frederick IX and Queen Luise's famous sitting room were recreated here. There are galleries that displayed photos, gifts and other goodies...

 The pictires are lousy, but the best I could come up with.  The guide book is much better, but my scanner is not workin.

Thanks for the photos. It is as it was in Queen Louise's time...full of small kinck-kancks (busts, frames, vases...etc).

Yes, typical of the era- clutter up the ying-yang.

Yep...Her daughter Alix was just as bad. Although both Alix and Dagmar's rooms were recreated like their mother's...can only see through old photos. Wonder if Thyra was like that as well. Interestingly where did Thyra stay when she visit Denmark in the latter years ?

Wow, from comments here I thought Empress Alexandra was into excessive clutter, but it was the royal style of the day then appparently.  Pity the poor servants that had to dust and keep all that cr*p clean.  :o

Thanks for the photos Robert, very eye-opening for me.  Words don't do such a conglomeration justice, you really need to se it. :)

One would always be afraid of knocking something over. I can imagine a cascade of falling Faberge frames, like dominoes, in rows upon rows! Still it was interesting to see.  All of the other royal rooms of that era seem to have been considerably "cleaned up", except, perhaps Sandringham. I see from  contemporary pictures that they still have some pretty cluttered  rooms.
 When I saw these rooms, I thought exactly the same thing Terrence- "what army of servants  had to dust all this?"
