Total disappointment. And too pricy on top of that. If you go, just stay in the bookshop. BUt easy to get there: train fromCph Central and then a bus which departs frequently. Cool archicture.

Amazing contemporary art museum a few km outside Copenhagen, reachable in about 45 minutes by train/bus. Well worth it. I was there for a breathtaking special exhibit on hyper-realistic statues, but the rest of the collection on display was (mostly) stunning and inventive, too. Interesting...More
