Louisiana; The Very Best Modern Art Museum On The Planet

Sometimes, walking Louisiana, the museum of modern-day art in Copenhagen resembles walking in the crazed mixture of a deluded and distressed artist. No matter where you look twisted shapes appear to form in the shadows; sculptures appear to mold and melt into something brand-new before your eyes, paintings offer the impression that they’re still leaking damp, drying just after you stroll past them and recall.

Louisiana can be discovered in Humlebæk simply 35kms north of Copenhagen; once you arrive, it truly does feel a lot even more away, a lot, so you question whether you near to the capital at all.

With over 3,000 works at the museum, there is something for everybody here too, no matter your age.

the museum

The very first area of Louisiana takes you through a modern-day analysis of cubism before you encounter a substantial space with floor-to-ceiling windows that exposes the lake and the forest exterior. The very best feature of this location is you can even go outside for a little walk around the lake.

Outdoors covert among the trees is a substantial slide (you see, I informed you there was something for everybody!) I’m not rather sure what the significance of the slide was, however like the remainder of the museum it can’t stop working to put a smile on your face.

There were a couple of sculptures and exhibits that I truly liked at Louisiana. Close to the coffee shop was this huge wood pyramid where everyone was relaxing about, and reaching the top is well worth it solely for the views alone.
