About This Day

Friends from around the world told us to save a day for Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. They were right! What an amazing day trip from Copenhagen with kids. Starting from Copenhagen, take the Øresund train to the small seaside town of Humlebæk. Enjoy an impressive collection of modern art both indoors and in the museum’s Sculpture Park, including a slide that you are allowed to slide on. In the Louisiana Børnehus wing, children can take free art workshops and play with Legos while you tour the more adult exhibits. Finally, buy snacks at the Louisiana Cafe, which has a small but excellent selection. If the weather’s nice, head outside for a picnic.

Copenhagen Central Station

Copenhagen Central Station is located in the heart of the city and is a gateway to all public transportation in, out and around Copenhagen. Inside you will find a shopping center, eateries, a bakery, convenience stores (mostly 7 Elevens,) bathrooms with baby changing facilities, showers, luggage storage, lost-and-found and a post office.
TIP The train station is super busy but easy to navigate. There is always someone available and easy to spot to help answer questions. My kids were amazed how many 7-Elevens are inside the station and how different they are than the US stores, plus they have fresh produce and salads!

Denmark's most visited art museum, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, is located in a beautiful seaside town that sits on the shores of the Øresund Sound. The Louisiana Museum has an impressive permanent collection, with over 3,500 works. It also has six to 10 special exhibits yearly. The Sculpture Park was perfect. We all got outside to enjoy the sculptures and the beautiful view of the sea. There is even a long winding slide through trees for kids of all ages; and by all ages, I mean Mom and Dad. (Yes, we went down the slide!). Louisiana Børnehus, the museum’s large Children's Wing, has three levels. There are free workshops for children every day where ages 4 to 16 can draw, paint and sculpt. It was a great opportunity for our kids to create. Meanwhile we had a couple of hours to view exhibits we knew may not be as interesting to them. The museum also has a small cafe which serves delicious salmon smørrebrød (“open-faced sandwich”). Our nuggets loved the mini strawberry pies.
DIRECTIONS From Copenhagen Central Station, take the Øresund train to Humlebæk station (there are two trains each hour). It is about a 35-minute train ride. From Humlebæk station you can either walk to Louisiana (about 15 minutes) or catch the Bus 388 to Louisiana, the price of which is included in your train ticket from Copenhagen.
TIP Be aware that not all sculptures outdoors are meant to be played on or touched. Signs are posted for which artwork is for viewing only. Children under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult to the workshops.
