Lovely sprawling modern museum. Great exhibitions. The location was stunning with fantastic grounds to mooch around in. The museum is located on the sea front. The restaurant also was great with delicious food (try the buffet) which was very well priced. Would go back again.

By far the most beautiful sculpture parks in the world. An impressive selection of world and local Danish art. Easily accessible by train from Copenhagen and well worth the 30 minute journey. Mouth watering food from the gallery cafe was the icing on this delicious cultural day out.

Took the train from the city and walked from the station a short way to the museum. It was well worth the trip. Not only was the indoor art exhibits unusual and captivating on many different levels, the outside ambiance overlooking Sweden was breathtaking. The outdoor sculptures were amusing and wonderfully thought provoking. The cafe looked to have beautifully displayed... More

Louisiana Museum is located in humlebaek, 15 min walk from the train station. It is a nice place to visit. You can enjoy visit the museum while enjoying the sights the see. It has part indoors and also exhibitions outdoors. But to be honest, what makes special this place is the location. Even if you don't really enjoy modern art,... More

We enjoyed the indoor - outdoor feel of this museum. We brought sandwiches for lunch, which we ate outside, while contemplating the sculptures and continued on our visit of the museum.

Your flight arrives at Kastrup airport in Copenhagen at 0700 in the morning, and leaves at 1500. You have about six hours to kill. You could take the metro to the city center and walk around aimlessly or you could do THIS. 1. Follow the signs to the trains and go to the ticket desk. (Not the metro.) If you... More

We were lucky with the weather coming here today. Ordinarily it's nice to visit museums on cold wet days but it pays to pick a sunny day when auditing here! The gardens and setting is amazing with views onto the sea! The exhibitions are great and cater for English as well as Danish speakers! Will definitely return!!

Visited Louisiana on a day trip from CPH; it is easily accessible by train and you can get a combination ticket to Humlebaek and back that includes museum entrance for DKK 200, just ask at the station. This is a world-renowned museum that is well worth a visit, not least because it is right on the coast and you can... More

This museum looks like a house from the outside, but once inside, you'll discover room after room of exhibitions. Make sure you go outside and see the view and the sculpture garden too. This museum is worth a visit even if modern art is not your first choice. It is within walking distance from the train. We stopped here on... More
