“Nicely located art museum”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

This fabulous museum is located by the sea just north of Copenhagen. The exhibitions on my visit was splendid and the temporarily Pop art was especially good! The gift shop was the biggest ive seen in any museum containing clothes, posters, toys, books and what not :-)

The restaurant offers a buffet or you can buy sandwiches and a good selection of cakes.

Tips: we went here early on a Sunday morning, and the museum was filled with parents with their ecstatic kids. To avoid this you should visit later on the day.

Thank Listian

“My favourite art museum”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I visit Louisiana at least 4-6 times a year. Really fantastic exhibitions by leading artists. The location is great, especially in the summertime, where you can relax in the large garden with the view over Øresund.

“Nice Museum, Half-Day Trip”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We were a little disappointed because a lot of the museum was not open because they were getting ready for another exposition. We did see the Warhol one and it was interesting.

The sculptures are really great outside and if you like architecture the place is worth visiting just to see the building design. If you go in winter make sure you get their early enough to walk around the sculptures / see the view of Sweden before it gets dark.

The restaurant has a brunch/offers dining that looked quite good and had a lot of traditional Danish options. We were a bit annoyed because there wasn't as much to see as we wanted so we headed back to Copenhagen for dinner but otherwise we could have very well just stayed there to have a drink and dinner.

“A mecca for modern sculpture”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The grounds--and the sculpture scattered around them--are the star of the show at this modern art museum outside of Copenhagen. Bring your sketchbook, as views of the sound and Sweden just beyond it are sure to inspire. Tour the exhibits inside at a faster clip, slowing down for exhibts from local Danish artist, and take your time to admire the sculptures by Giacomettis,Jean Arp, Henry Moore, Max Ernt, and Alexander Calder.
