Louisiana is an institution in Denmark. For decades residing by the see in Humlebæk, with the impressive gardens and monumental sculptures, the exquisite permanent collection, and the always beautiful high-end exhibitions with a slightly thought-provoking edge. This time we saw zillions of works by women in surrealism. You always hear about the men... Dali, Breton; but never about the women. It would be an understatement to say that this exhibition compensates for this. It really makes the point, and it is a very interesting exhibition with many beautiful pieces of art. We Danes love Louisiana. We love the place, the art, the shop, the repetitive visits through the years, and the tranquil atmosphere. Please go, I’m sure you’ll love it, too!

We had quite high hopes and expectations coming to Louisiana. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed. When trying to book tickets online, we had trouble paying online and the website did not work correctly, therefore making it quite difficult to buy tickets or book timeslots. When calling to the museum to ask about this, the woman talking to us was curt and not very welcoming. We managed to book a timeslot in the end, which we would really recommend, because when we arrived at the museum there was a really long line for visitors who did not book a timeslot. Booking a timeslot saves a lot of time! You can easily get to Louisiane from Copenhagen by train, and then walking or taking the bus. Pay attention when taking the bus: we missed our stop because the bus drove really fast and the stops were not broadcasted clearly in the bus. Inside the museum, it was quite busy and crowded. Corona guidelines were stated but not really followed. As we said, we had high expectations about the collections in the museum, but unfortunately, we did not enjoy it that much. This of course depends on which exhibitions are on display en whether these are artists/subjects match your personal taste. I guess we just didn’t get very lucky this time in that regard. We most enjoyed our time outside of the museum; there is a garden, with an outlook on the sea, quite nice. There is an exit in this garden where you end up on the pebble beach; this was definitely our favourite spot! Lovely to watch and hear the waves and a good spot to take some pictures. In short: we did not really the museum itself, but we realize this is largely due to the exhibitions and personal taste. Would recommend the pebble beach close to the museum though!

Coming from in danish eyes “relaxed” Sweden it was a shock to see how many people were allowed in the museum. After visiting the modern museum in Malmö yesterday with good rules and not too many people, it was like the Danes had a new test with how many people you could cram into one small place. Even with a booked time slot it was an insane amount of people in today’s day and age, people who did not follow the rules, if you tried to keep distance someone quickly filled the one meter gap between you and the next person. The people working did not say anything about it and if you told them they did not care. No wonder Denmark cases of the corona virus are rising among the fastest in Europe. We left the museum early and will stay in Sweden from now on.

This was a definite highlight of our trip to Denmark. Well worth the train journey. The collection was a great mix from around the world and the sculpture park is beautiful. The favourites for me were the Henry Moor and Roy Lichtenstein sculptures. Stunning location and setting. The children’s wing has craft activities (free) and we made and painted clay sculptures which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. We ate lunch here and it was one of the best meals we had during our holiday. Yes it’s expensive, but it’s comparable to prices in Copenhagen and the food was very good quality. Simple snack boxes for the kids but the portion was well balanced and the kids were happy. Contrary to a review below the restaurant definitely does sell tap water, they just serve it in a recyclable cardboard carton. The only thing that could be improved is the time slot system. We followed instructions on the website and booked a time slot (11am) but when we arrived there was a huge queue of people all with a 11am or 11.30am time slot. In the end we didn’t get in until 11.45am whilst people with a 11.30am time slot got in at 11am which doesn’t make sense. They should sell fewer tickets for each slot or have someone walk down the queue and let those with an earlier time slot go first. But that’s a minor thing and it didn’t spoil our visit :-)

Fantastic museum and grounds. There was one thing about the place though that I though was remarkable in a negative way. They sold these paper recyclable water bottles with messages about the importance of saving material etc, but then did not serve tapped water in the resultant. Just so incredibly stupid.
