Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is a leading international art museum and an absolute top attraction in Denmark. Art, nature and architecture combine in a total experience that attracts guests from all over the world year-round.

A unique setting

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is located in Humlebæk, North Sealand, in a beautiful old park offering magnificent panoramic views of the Sound. The museum buildings lend themselves beautifully to the park, which is landscaped with open lawns, shady woods, a view terrace and a gorge down to the beach. The park provides a magnificent setting for Louisiana’s large sculpture collection.

Twentieth-century Modern Art

Louisiana’s collection of modern art dates from 1945 to the present day. It is one of Scandinavia’s largest collections and contains more than 4,000 artworks within virtually all genres with an emphasis on painting and sculpture. The collection is far too extensive to be displayed in its entirety, but selected works are continuously on view in new dynamic contexts. Permanent highlights include the Giacometti Hall, the Jorn Room and the Kusama Installation. 

Classics and shooting international stars

In addition to the permanent collection, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art features 6 - 10 major exhibitions annually. Here, the classics of modern art, as well as contemporary international artists and architects, are presented. In connection with the exhibitions, the museum publishes art catalogues in the form of Louisiana Revy as well as special catalogues. 

Sculptures in interaction with nature

The sculpture park is a major feature of any visit to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art no matter the time of year. The museum’s parkland location facing the Sound and the landscaped parkland provide optimal conditions for a varied and exciting exhibition of the collection’s approx. 60 sculptures.

 A vibrant cultural centre for children and adults alike

With its relaxed atmosphere, the museum also offers a vibrant and dedicated cultural centre with a rich programme of activities and events for children and adults alike. The Children’s Wing is a universe dedicated to children, where skilled art intermediaries are responsible for child-friendly activities that relate to the current exhibitions. Adults can take part in guided tours, lectures, concerts, films, workshops, literature festivals and more.

Take a break at the Louisiana Café

When it’s time for a break, the Louisiana Café offers hot and cold drinks, sweet treats or a welcoming lunch or evening buffet. House-made dishes using prime seasonal produce.

Shop Scandinavian design in the Louisiana Store

In the museum’s sizeable two-level store, you will find a large and inspiring selection of new and classic items with an emphasis on Danish and Scandinavian design. Interior, clothing, books, posters, graphics, toys and more. 

Visitor-friendly opening hours

The museum is open from 9:00 until 23:00 on Mondays to Saturdays, and from 9:00 - 18:00 Sundays so you can plan an evening visit combined with a delicious buffet in the café.
