Sundays 11:30-13:30; Louisiana Children’s House, Gammel Strandvej 13, Humlebæk;125kr, kids 20kr;

Prepare to be amazed at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and take in their collections of not so conventional large and small sculptures by famous artists like Cesar, who made a big copy of his own thumb in bronze, or Alberto Giacometti, whose bust could fit into in a matchbox.

Bring the children and enjoy Art Sunday and afterwards, if the family feels like doing something else, the youngest can draw on their imagination and creativity in the museum workshops.

There tends to be limited space, so don’t miss this chance!
