Ordrupgaard is an art museum that sets the mind and imagination free. With the renowned collections, art under the open sky, the changing special exhibitions and the visionary architecture, Ordrupgaard creates a dialogue between past and present.
Ordrupgaard is a museum of French impressionism with artists such as Monet, Degas, Renoir and Gauguin. In addition, there is a significant collection of Danish art concentrated around Hammershøi and his time – as well as changing special exhibitions. In the park you will find works by international contemporary artists. Or you can visit Finn Juhl’s world-famous house. Buildings by Zaha Hadid and Snøhetta emphasize the museum’s architectural profile and appear as works in their own right. Ordrupgaard was founded by the married couple Wilhelm and Henny Hansen as a private art collection. The museum is still located in the founding couple’s stately home, Ordrupgaard, which was built in 1918.
