Here are two museums in Denmark that are worth your time, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, in Copenhagen, and the lesser known Skagens Museum, in the small port town of Skagens.
Louisiana Museum of Modern Art
Just 20 some miles north of Copenhagen, in the little town of Humlebæk on the Øresund sound, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is one of the world’s great contemporary art museums. The museum was founded in 1958 by Knud W. Jensen. He commissioned architects Vilhelm Wohlert and Jørgen Bo, who designed three buildings connected by glass corridors. In addition to housing works by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Anselm Kiefer, Alberto Giacometti, Pablo Picasso, Yves Klein, Robert Rauschenberg and David Hockney, among others, the museum features a collection of pre-Columbian art, a sculpture garden and a concert hall.
Provocative exhibitions of contemporary works are frequently staged. The museum is popular with local people, who come for lunch on its delightful open-air terrace overlooking the sea.
