Parkmuseerne – A New Museum District in Copenhagen

Parkmuseerne is a new museum district in Copenhagen 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. The objective is to make Parkmuseerne a nationally and internationally acclaimed museum district.

Parkmuseerne will be officially opened on 18 March. The days that follow will see the opening of six co-ordinated exhibitions sharing a common theme: Flowers. The subject will be considered from six widely different angles.

”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,” said Karsten Ohrt, chairman of Parkmuseerne and director of The National Gallery of Denmark.

All the museums are within walking distance from each other, and they are set in parklands that span the King’s Gardens, the Botanical Garden, and the Østre Anlæg park. The official opening marks the onset of a programme of new, joint activities and experiences that reinvent how the museums reach out to their audiences. The objective is to meet the users of the area where they are, mentally and physically, by connecting the indoor and outdoor spheres and by linking up the museums in new ways. These activities join the museum’s regular rich array of activities and opportunities for users of all ages.
