NileGuide Expert tip:
New to the museum is architect and designer Finn Juhl's house, found annexed in the grounds. Note: Currently closed until October 2010.
Although by no means as extensive as Louisiana, Ordrupgaard combines a day out in the country with the opportunity to view art exhibitions of an international calber. While the original building was created in 1918 to house a collection of French impressionism as well as a number of works from the Danish Golden Age, a new extension by acclaimed architect Zaha Hadid in 2005 has added a new modern dimension to a visit. Ordrupgaard's large park is also open to the public, and visitors can choose between the museum's cafe and bringing a picnic basket to enjoy in the grounds. Public transport takes you virtually to the door: take the S-train to Klampenborg / Lyngby followed by bus 110.
