Louisiana Museum for Moderne Kunst, Humlebaek, Denmark

Half of this gallery’s appeal is the setting. It’s located by the coast with gardens (dotted with glorious Henry Moore statues) that seem to cascade down dramatically towards the sea. The architecture is fascinating too – there’s the original, traditional house, which looks like something out of Louisiana in the Deep South with its white clapboard walls and porch and then the spectacular modernist extension(s), which resemble something out of a Japanese-themed Bond film from the 60s. The site is sprawling and there is literally something surprising/delightful at every turn (a view, a lake, a slide built into the forest). Well worth the pilgrimage out to Humlebaek.
