About
Odrupgaard is an exclusive art museum with a collection that includes names such as Monet, Gauguin, Matisse, Renoir and Hammershoi. Initially, the museum building served as a manor house. You can still sense the atmosphere throughout the old rooms and the park. Additionally, you can experience temporary exhibitions and (on weekends) visit the renowned Danish architect Finn Juhl's house which is a part of the museum. The sculptural extensional adjacent building is designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Zaha Hadid. How to get there: Take the S-train to Klampenborg or Lyngby Station, and then take bus 388 to Vilvordevej. It is a 2-minute walk from there to the museum.

How to get there:
1.Use the journey planner Rajseplanen when planning a visit; it helps especially since Bus 388 runs only every 30 minutes! 2.Take the s-train (line C) to Klampenborg from Kobenhavn H (Copenhagen Central Station).
3. Upon alighting at Klampenborg Station, cross the road to take Bus 388 (going towards Lyngby St).

4.If you've checked Rajseplanen beforehand, you shouldn't have to wait long for Bus 388.
5.Do ask the bus driver to alert you (almost all the Danish I've met are very nice and helpful people so do ask with a smile) as to when you should alight-let him know your destination: Vilvordevej, Ordrupgaard or better still, show him in writing unless you speak Danish well. He'll announce the stop so you can press the bell and get off; the bus doesn't stop at every bus stop so trying to spot or worse still, missing the stop is painful.
6.Cross the road, walk for about 5 minutes and voila, you're there!
What to see:
Landscape paintings and still life among others by Pissarro, Monet, Degas, Manet, Armand Guillaumin,
Charles-Francois Daubigny, Jules Dupre and Paul Cezanne among others.
P.S. The cafe is in a nice, soothing and quiet place close to nature.

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!

First of all, to reach the museum you need to get the train to Klampenborg (the Øresundståg expresses stop there) then cross the road for the number 388 bus for a 5-minute ride (it's short enough to walk back once you know the way) costing 24DKR. The bus stops just at the edge of the park and runs every 30 minutes.

The museum has really 3 components: the core collection, a special exhibition, and the house of the great Danish designer, Finn Juhl. The core collection, housed in the old building, is quite modest in size and concentrates on Danish and French 19th-Century work of varying levels of interest. The Gauguin's alone make the trip worthwhile. The special exhibition though should probably be more of a decisive factor in planning a visit: the current extensive Vilhelm Hammershøi centenary exhibition is a wonderful overview of an artist much underrated outside of Denmark. I believe this closes and soon and will be replaced later in the year by an exhibition devoted to Monet.

Finn Juhl's house is a must to understand mid-20th century Scandinavian design and architecture. If that's not your thing it might come across as a little unremarkable, in itself a testimony to the huge influence Juhl has exerted on contemporary furniture design (think IKEA).

The temporary exhibition, ticketing area, a shall bookshop and cafe are all housed in a Zaha Hadid extension which is worth seeing in its own right, though photos tend to make it look larger and more monumental than it feels in the flesh.

So a small track north of Copenhagen is required but is well worthwhile. It's probably wise though to check what's showing first as the special exhibition as if you're not into the artist shown you may find you can take in both the Juhl house and the permanent collections rather too quickly.

At Ordrupgaard we found both fine French impressionist paintings, modern architecture and contemporary art sculptures. A small gemstone hidden away in the former residence of Danish art collectors. Set in a beautiful garden, open to the public free of charge and displaying sculptures by contemporary Danish and International artists, you may decide to enter into the original villa, and to the annex, designed by superstar architect Zaha Hadid. The well-known Danish furniture designer and architect Finn Juhl's private house also belongs to Ordrupgaard. Located in Charlottenlund, near the Dyrehaven Woods. Getting there: Take the S-train, line C, get off at Klampenborg. Take bus no. 388 towards Lyngby and get off at Vilvordevej.

The location of this museum/gallery is amazing! It was a little further out of Copenhagen but not tricky to get to if you follow the directions on their website - we walked back to the station at the end of the visit to enjoy being out in the country (it was autumn and the leaves were turning).
The architecture (old and new) was beautiful and the gardens very peaceful.

It's worth going there if you have a love of midcentury architecture as Finn Juhl's house is just wonderful. I found it hard to leave!

The exibition consist in two part, the Impressionists and some Danish artists which are in the old builiding. The collection of Impressionist seems basic, and is not more than 30/40 works. The Extension made by the archistar Zaha Hadid is a new building connected to the old one, and is the location for temporary exibitions and the coffe shop. The park is very nice and you can see the very beatiful new building from the outside. The place is not well connected for the return, since the bus to the train station passes every 30 minutes - in our visit the bus was full and so it did not stop and we walked for 25-30 minutes, it's 2km of a good street without hills.Anyway, you can call a taxi from the museum.

This was a very small museum that we visited because it was listed on the Copenhagen Card. It was difficult to find for us at least and another mother/daughter duo from the area that we happened upon while trying to find it. I followed the directions of the google map search but didn't do the bus right. At the very least, if you want to visit this ask the bus driver to let you off at the correct stop for it. Don't follow google maps directions or you will get lost.

They were showing Anna Syberg and someone else when we were there. They were all fine just not awe inspiring and it was so small and took so much time to get to and then back that unless you love art I would skip it. The staff also wasn't very friendly.

Ordrupgaard in the past was a museum with a high quality permanent collection and one temporary exhibition of impressionist art. Since they have added a new section allowing to run two exhibitions in parallel. And the famous architect Finn Juhl's house have become part of the exhibition as well. More impressive than ever!
Currently they run two main exhibitions: one of the famous Danish flow painter Anna Syberg called "A Feel for Flowers". This part clearly highlights her renewed way of approaching flower painting to be considered modern today even though done a 100 years back (ends 25 August 2013).
The exhibition of Mary Cassatt is equally impressive (some will say even more) - quite a wide selection of this French-American impressionist (ends 9 June 2013).
Finn Juhl's house is located at the back towards the left (reception can guide you if necessary). You find a big selection of modern design furniture as well as a lot lovely COBRA paintings. Quite impressive.
With the quite huge selection the proposal is to combine the visit with a tour in the garden or a visit to the cafe, where they serve nice lunches as well as other good things.

For people who enjoy fine French paintings,I recommend this cozy art museum located close to the royal deer park in suburban Klampenborg. At this art museum,artists such as;Corot,Theodore Rousseau,Monet,Guillaumin,Pissarro,and Gauguin were especially well-represented.Personal favorites were;Monet's "Waterloo Bridge,1903",Guillaumin's"Seine at Clarenton",Marquet's"Bay of Naples",and Gauguin's"Adam and Eve".At this pleasant art museum,I saw its delightful collection of Danish Naturalist,Wilhelm Hammershoi's paintings.So enjoy this relatively small art museum.

The museum is housed in a mansion of a rich Danish businessman and art collector, which later on bequeathed the property and the huge art collection to the Danish state. The mansion is located with large grounds around it, and close to Dyrehaven, which makes it an attractive place to visit on a day tour, as you can explore the park and the neighbouring forest after a visit to the musuem. The museum is easy to reach by public transport i.e. by train to either Lyngby Station or Klampenborg Station, and from there by bus, which leaves every thirty minutes. We visited the museum to see the Monet exhibition which lasts until first week of December, 2016. Although it was an ordinary Wednesday in the fall, there was a long queue at the entrance, when the musuem opened at 11 AM. However, the staff were very efficient, so we did not have to wait long to enter. The temporary exhibition of Monet was very interesting and finely curated, as well as the permanent exhibition with its collection of Danish artists's works. This is surely one of the best museums in Denmark.
