Louisiana Museum of Contemporary Art

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.

This diaper was my favorite “container” or vessel brought by the guests for Yoko to fill with water.
