Tickets may be purchased online and the Copenhagen Card is valid at The Louisiana, which covers both admission and transportation.
The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is about a 35-minute train ride from Copenhagen Central Station to Humlebæk. The station has many choices to grab coffee and a quick breakfast or pick up snacks for the train ride. Be sure to check the weather forecast due to waiting for the trains outdoors and a short walk from the station to the museum.
The museum is hugely popular, especially on the weekends. Visit as early as possible. The museum is open on most public holidays but closes early. It is closed on Mondays.
Warmer weather months are best to enjoy the outdoor sculpture park and seaside view.
Admission is free for children under the age of 18.
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.
