“A wonderful place for an artistic trip outside of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This wonderful art museum - originally a private country mansion - now owned by the Danish State - contains an extensive collection of French Impressionists like Pisarro, Sisley, Degas, Renoir, Monet and Gaugain - as well as paintings from fhe Danish Golden Age. If you like the use of indirect light in art work, they have a room dedicated to the works of the excellent Danish painter Wilhelm Hammershøi.
It's wonderful to walk around in these beautiful rooms enjoying top quality art works - try it !!

“A wonderful museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Here to see the French impressionist Berthe Marisot and what a wonderful museum. Not far away from Copenhagen, but a nice jaunt out of the city. Fantastic surroundings and a great little cafe to quench your thirst or quell the hunger after all the artistic impressions. Highly recommend.

“Difficult to get there, but just worthwhile!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We went there to have a look at the modern museum architecture, by Zaha Hadid and also the impressive collections of impressionist and post impressionist paintings. However to get there from copenhagen was quite a task. You have to take the S-train to Klampenborg, and take bus No. 388 to the museum. The bus is not that frequent, so returning to the train station was quite a wait!

Once we were at the Ordrupgaard, we were amazed and in aww, in the architecture of the museum. Also the paintings collection were amazing, pissaro, monet, sisley and renoir to name a few. Next to the museum, is the house of Danish furniture designer Finn Juhl. Interesting.

There is a nice cafeteria with the glass side view of the garden. Nice to have a cuppa and see the view.

Definitely worth a visit!

“Amazing museum..Make the effort to get there and you'll be rewarded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I am surprised to see that this place has so few reviews. Nevertheless, if you are interested in Impressionism, you must visit this off the beaten track museum as it has a stunning collection of Impressionist paintings. It takes a bit of effort to get here as you need to take a train from Copenhagen to Lyngby/Klampenborg and hop on to a bus from there. Ask the driver to inform you when the museum comes. Coming back to the museum itself, it is a charming and quaint old building in the middle of a park (looks like a small forest) connected to a modern wing housing special exhibitions. Take some time exploring the grounds as they lend a special atmosphere to the whole place. The art collection is really mesmerizing and almost every important figure of the impressionist art movement is represented. Do not forget to visit the house of the famous Danish architect Finn Juhl which is right next to the museum. I had never heard of him before but I still went to see the house and it was really interesting. I would really urge every art lover to make the effort to go to this place. You won't be disappointed.
