“Great artist”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

The park is near Helsingør and worth the walk round the heathland. Statues are always better viewed in landscape. Tegner lived 1873-1950 and is associated with the Symbolist movement. From 1890-93 he collaborated with Gustav Vigeland, the Norwegian sculptor, and there are parallels in his work... then Tegner moved to Paris and you can also see the influence of Auguste Rodin. The museum is interesting, the works more to our taste than the neoclssical statues of Thorvaldsen which we viewed in Copenhagen. Well worth a visit. Shop on site selling books, etc There is a cafe a short walk away.

“Tegners Museum & Statuepark - not your ordinary museum”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Placed in a baren, unpopulated area of Northern Zealand, this museum drips of cool sculptures, history, petty infighting and of course Mr. Tegner's (mad?) genius.
Many sculptures, large and small, are collected in a concrete "bunker" (the artist is of course burried in the middle). There are also sculptures outdoors, in a wonderful park, where the lovely landscapes and views can be appreciated.
The museum is open from April until early October and can be combined with a trip to the beutiful beaches at Dronningmølle and Hornbæk. Really off the beaten path. What could be better. Just a couple of kilometers walk from the train station.
