Copenhagen Unveils New Museum District


With the launch of Parkmuseerne, visitors to Copenhagen may now saunter through green gardens and parks along a trail of museums.

The new museum district, located in the centre of Copenhagen, will be popular with travellers interested in art, nature, history and film.

Parkmuseerne consist of six participating museums: The David Collection, The Filmhouse, The Hirschsprung Collection, SMK (National Gallery of Denmark), The Natural History Museum of Denmark and Rosenborg Castle. The museums are all within walking distance of each other, and this spring Parkmuseerne is launching an advantageous combined ticket.

Parkmuseerne houses world-class collections of Danish and international art at SMK (National Gallery of Denmark), The David Collection and The Hirschsprung Collection. Visitors can enjoy masterpieces by Matisse, Mantegna, Købke, Hammershøi, the Skagen painters and a significant Islamic collection. Parkmuseerne also has its own cinema – The Filmhouse – which offers a repertoire of Danish and international films.

Visiting the museums may also prompt guests to visit the parks: the King’s Garden, the Botanical Garden, and the Østre Anlæg Park. The green area creates a haven that allows visitors to slow down, take a rest, visit playgrounds, and enjoy a light meal or a cup of coffee in the surrounding cafés and restaurants.

On May 24, Parkmuseerne will launch a new ticket, which will make it easier to visit the museum district. The ticket provides admission to all six museums at a cost of DKK 195 and is for sale at all six museums.
