Louisiana, Museum of Modern Art

For this post we’re stepping a little bit outside of sustainability and a little bit outside of Copenhagen. Suck it up. We visited Louisiana this Sunday and it was absolutely magnificent. I’ll tell you all about this wonder of a museum with fine architecture in Humlebaek, Denmark.

The museum was originally an estate and is named after the original owner’s three wives, all named Louise. Created in 1968, this place is the result of revamping and multiple add-ons.

As we entered, we were somewhat confused as to what the place actually contains. This is due to the fact that we were led through tight corridors that snake around the property, presented with beautiful ocean views along the way to satisfy our tired eyes. The displays that we encountered on our voyage were breathtaking and offer a different perspective on the simplest of things. We saw displays made out of needles, straws and toothpicks and exhibitions of names like Andy Warhol and Tara Donovan. Our trip concluded in the gift-shop where we could purchase a variety of things ranging from kitchen-ware to posters.

The museum is located roughly and hour north of Copenhagen and is definitely a day-trip, so pack a lunch or pay an expensive meal!

The prices listed are a one-time fee and allow you entry for a year.

Student – 95 kr
Adult – 110 kr.
