I can't speak highly enough of the Louisiana Museum. The outside gardens are full with all kinds of modern masters and the interior exhibits are exceptional. If you like modern art this is an absolute must. A nice 15 min walk from the train station.

I had been before to see an amazing light installation. The exhibitions this time were not as good but I absolutely love it here. We went later so that we could walk in the gardens for the sunset. Absolutely beautiful setting. Definitely visit.

Besides from the artworks in the museum, the atmosphere and view in and outside the museum are great.

Traveled to the Louisiana Museum on the advice of my sister and good advice it was. The museum is located north of Copenhagen, 40 minutes by train. Once you arrive it's a very short and interesting walk through a residential area to the museum. I was travelling with my suitcase and thankfully the museum had lockers available to lock the...

I have travelled to many destinations and visited many museum, and I feel confident when I state that Louisiana is one of the best museums in the world. Constantly changing exhibitions trigger curiosity and further explorations. It is always an experience. The buffet dinner in the restaurant is excellent and good value-for-money. The view to Sweden is breathtaking.

We had a lively time on a sunny day at this beautiful museum. The location has an awesome view. The building is built with a taste. And the artwork are great. The sculptures and the layout are outstanding. It is about half hour train ride from the Copenhagen main train station. Buy combination ticket with museum pass and round trip.

After a suggestion from the guidebook and prompting from others who had visited Copenhagen previously, I made the trip out to Louisiana on a blustery, rainy Sunday. Don’t let the train journey which is incredibly easy from central Copenhagen put you off – this is a trip worth taking. The buildings are a marvel in modern architecture. Whitewashed brick walls,...

I have been to Louisiana Museum of Modern Art last Sunday and it has been quite a nice way of spending a Danish windy and cold day. It is very easy to get there from Copenhagen central station, just taking the train to Humlebaek (around 35 minutes) and then having a walk from the station till the museum. Unfortunately, the...

This is one of the best modern art museums I've been to. We went during a William Kentridge exhibition which was stunning, moving, immersive, and thought-provoking. The Zaha Hadid addition is beautiful and the spaces that thus cater for the art are amazing showing off a great collection. The museum blends art, architecture, and landscape to create something really special.
