30 km north of Copenhagen is Louisiana, Museum of Modern Art which is so wonderful it warrants a page to itself in my blog. It is easy to get to by S -train from central station, Copenhagen. You need to get off at Humlebæk station and then it’s a 15 minute walk to Louisiana. If you are driving, there is free parking on site. All the information you need is in their excellent website. [Under 18’s are free!]

The museum was created in the late 1950’s and was called Louisiana after the original land owner’s 3 wives, who were all called Louise!

Louisiana is by the sea and set in beautiful gardens which has many fascinating sculptures, some by Miro and Henry Moore. The view over the sea towards Sweden is spectacular.

There are permanent exhibitions as well as temporary ones. The exhibits are varied, often thought provoking and interactive as well as visually stunning.

There is a large [expensive] cafe on site. If the weather is nice a picnic in the garden would be lovely [and cheaper].

Some exhibits showed the less serious side of art which I loved. It is a wonderful day out for all ages.
