We stopped at Louisiana on the way back to Copenhagen after having visited Elsinore in the morning. We walked from the train station. It took us about 15 minutes and it was very easy to get to. The collection of modern art here is staggering. It's all housed in a sprawling complex that is wonderfully designed. Perhaps the most intriguing... More

Loved this place. Beautiful place just outside Copenhagen. I ended up going to this museum before doing anything in Copenhagen. I don't regret it one bit. Beautiful view. Exhibits were great. Seemed so diverse that there was something bound to please anyone. Gave it one less star because it is a bit expensive using regional train. Despite this, I wouldn't... More

Nature and culture in a perfect symbiosis!! It is a contemporary Art museum but I think is more than this. It is a place to enjoy, close to the sea, with unexpected windows with amazing views...to enjoy on a sofa!!! Galleries too have a deep relationship with the nature....the internal and external sides of the museum seems to be without... More

Splendid place - a combination of long-term and temporary exhibitions. Situated near the sea and surrounded by a lovely garden with outdoor sculpture, a sea view and an enchanting lake. We were fortunate in that the temporary exhibition featured paintings by the artist Paula Modersohn Becker, of whom we were not hitherto aware, but who was enormously gifted (but, alas,... More

i have never experienced such an appreciation for Yoko Ono as I did when I visited her incredible exhibit at Lousiana. This beautiful museum is a wealth of both indoor and outdoor beauty. After viewing the many exhibits, enjoy delicious food In a lovely park like setting.

This museum is fantastic. The Danish Modern architecture of the museum, tucked away near the sea, lends to a superb display of art. As you meander (inside and out), there are many places to stop and rest. The café within the museum serves excellent food at a great price. I cannot recommend this place enough-- I only wish I'd been... More

2 exhibitions were not open yet and we were left with painting of naked, sad and shy women by Paula Modersohn plus art by a few other really sleep provocative artists.. It's way overrated to pay 110kr for that. The only plus side was the garden which has a magnificent sea view.

Our family visited the Louisiana museum of modern art in late December and thoroughly enjoyed it. The art work was fantastic and we especially enjoyed the outdoor features with a number of them located on a lookout overlooking the Oresund towards Sweden. This provides a dramatic backdrop and adds to the effect of the sculpture's The museum has a great... More

I've been to many modern art museums/galleries and this is my new favourite. It's a relaxing 40 minute train ride from Copenhagen Central Station to Humlebaek and a brisk 10 -15 minute walk from there. The museum is situated by the sea with stunning views over the Oresund out to Sweden. When we went, there was a selection of top-notch... More
