Copenhagen home to new museums' quarter

Date Posted: 12/03/2013

A school group trip to Copenhagen in Denmark will be able to incorporate a visit to its new museum’s quarter, Parkmuseerne, from the 18th March.

Parkmuseerne has been created through the collaboration of the David Collection, the Filmhouse, the Hirschsprung Collection, Rosenborg Castle, the National History Museum of Denmark, and the National Gallery of Denmark.

Once the district is officially opened next week (18th March), a co-ordinated exhibition will be unveiled at each of the six venues, all sharing a ‘flowers’ theme, but approached from six different angles.

The museums are all within walking distance from each other, and are set in parklands that span the King’s Gardens, the Botanical Garden, and the Østre Anlæg Park.

Karsten Ohrt, chairman of Parkmuseerne and director of The National Gallery of Denmark commented:  “With a total of one million visitors at the six museums and a total of three million visits to the parks each year, the area is excellently suited to becoming a unique museum district where visitors can experience the best from the realms of art and nature.

“With this collaborative project we wish to create a museum district to match those of other cities such as Berlin and Vienna,” he said.
