This is the finest museum of modern art in Denmark and it has a unique location close to Øresund. The permanent collection has many interesting paintings, among other a masterpiece by David Hockney. Don't miss Yayoi Kusamas installation "Gleaming Lights of the Souls". You may need to stand in line. Only two persons are permitted at a time. But it is worth waiting. In the 2015/16 season two major special exhibitions show painting by Peter Doig (until august 2015) and in the autumn there is an exhibition by Kusama.
