One of the sights to see, if you are a contemporary art lover — or even if you have only a passing interest in contemporary art — is the Louisiana Museum in Helsinger, Denmark. It is a 30-minute train ride from Copenhagen, and the setting alone is worth the trip. In addition, a person can make a day trip and also go to “Hamlet’s Castle,” the real danish castle in which Shakespeare set his story of the Danish Prince Hamlet. But more on that in a subsequent post (I promise).
The Louisiana’s “permanent” collection consists, primarily, of the sculptures in the sculpture garden. There is also a lovely café, and to eat in the sun by the sea is worth the extra cost of eating at a museum. We had a lovely time, and the Yoko Ono exhibit, while strange, was very interesting. Here are some excerpts.
