Copenhagen – part 2
The cultural part.
I love going to musea. And because of the ‘bad’, ‘cold’ and ‘rainy’ weather we didn’t felt guilty being inside the museum (in stead of enjoying the weather and our bikerides)
This is one of the best museum that I saw in my life (except from Palais de Tokyo in Paris, that one is unbeatable). We took the train from copenhagen to Humlebæk. After a 10 minute walk we arrived at this museum. It’s very easy to find, and in the station you can ask for a combi-ticket for the train AND the museum (which is much cheaper then buying both separated).
The museum shows an amazing collection, and the temporary exhibition about Yoko Ono was also great. It’s a nice set-up and you never get bored looking at the artworks (what I have in some musea … ). There is also a nice café to drink something, but my absolute plus about the museum are the views. It’s like a dream. From the museum garden you have the best view on the sea.
A museum for everyone. Go !

Denmark is well known for the great Danish-design, therefor it is a must-do to go to the local design museum. They have a nice collection of design objects, and they also have a beautiful antique / textile collection. Also their museumshop and little restaurant worth a visit.
Didn’t took pictures of the furnitures. So in the picture you only can see the ceramics. And the space where the textile collection is.
STATENS MUSEUM FOR KUNST
On a rainy day, we decided to go to a museum. A friend told us about the beautiful temporary exhibition about flowers, so we took our bikes to go to The statens museum. We were just an hour before closing time, so we decided just to see the permanent collection (you can look at it for free). This was very impressive. A lot of old paintings.
My absolute favorite work of the permanent collection is a work from Matisse (picture 2). I feel like I look a bit like the lady on the painting. It always makes me smile.
Also the building is very impressive. I think they just renovated the space. Worth a visit.
