No matter which Danish city you’re traveling to, the country brims with museums whose great collections cover a wide range of art styles and eras. From the prehistoric times and the Viking Age to the Danish Golden Age and contemporary art, Denmark’s museums will satisfy even the more demanding culture buffs.
Artworks and antiquities from the beginning of history in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Ancient Greece, Etruria, and the Roman Empire in Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, one of Denmark’s most interesting museums. Founded at the turn of the 20th century by Carl Jakobsen, a great art lover and collector, the Glyptoteke has been a significant asset in Denmark’s cultural and educational sectors for over a century. The museum also includes Danish artworks in its wide collection, so those who would rather see paintings from the famous Danish Golden Age than Egyptian antiquities won’t be disappointed. Nonetheless, don’t forget to check the mummies in Glyptotek’s Egyptian burial chamber.
Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Richard Hamilton are only a few of the accomplished artists whose paintings the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art displays. Located on the coast of Øresund in Humlebæk (approximately 40 minutes from Copenhagen), a visit to this museum is the perfect chance for one-day trip that combines culture and natural beauty.
