The Nivaagaard Collection

Notice: The Nivaagaard Collection is offering a discounted entrance fee from Tuesdays to Fridays between the hours 16:00 – 20:00, where the entrance tickets are half the normal price. This is due to the museum being in the process of a major climate renovation in 2021, where some of our exhibition halls will be closed during this time. 

The Nivaagaard Collection was founded by landowner Johannes Hage, whose private collection was donated to the public as an independent institution in 1908. The museum is located in a large, romantic garden full of beautiful old trees and abundant rhododendrons. At the museum, you can experience art from the Italian and Northern European Renaissance, the Dutch Baroque and the Danish Golden Age. In addition, the museum presents two to three special exhibitions each year, often featuring contemporary or modern art.
