- SORRY FOR THE MESS
Louisiana is presently carrying out several projects to optimize the experience of the museum both aesthetically and functionally. While the construction work, generously supported by the Realdania foundation, is undertaken with the greatest possible consideration for our visitors, we do apologise for the inconvenience caused.
Louisiana Cafe: The existing roof on the Winter Garden will be replaced by a flat roof consistent with the adjacent buildings. A new passage will also be established in order to allow the visitors to circumvent the Cafe and access the Winter Garden and the stairs down to the East Wing directly from the North Wing
The area connecting the East and South Wings will be turned into a panorama space with several windows and a long bench for guests to sit on and enjoy the view to the park in both directions.
East Wing: Unfortunately access to the East Wing and the presentation of works from the Louisiana Collection will be limited while the construction works are ongoing (no access by lift). You can enter the East Wing either from the outside via the Park (from the level below the large set of steps by the Calder-terrace) or via a narrow passage from the Gabriele Münter exhibition in the South Wing. We regret that during this time the East Wing will therefore not be accessible for visitors with difficulty in walking or in wheelchairs.
