Visit The Hirschsprung Collection

All of the 1800s — one museum

The Hirschsprung Collection is beautifully situated in the green parklands of Østre Anlæg in the center of Copenhagen. Founded by tobaccomanufacturer and art collector Heinrich Hirschsprung and his wife Pauline, the museum first opened its doors to the public in the summer of 1911.

The museum houses more than 100 years of Danish art from the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, ranging from the Golden Age to the Skagen Painters and the advent of Modernism. The collection includes masterpieces by C.W. Eckersberg, Christen Købke, J.Th. Lundbye, P.S. Krøyer, Anna and Michael Ancher, Theodor Philipsen and Vilhelm Hammershøi.

Exhibitions and events

The museum hosts two big temporary exhibitions a year during spring and autumn and several smaller exhibitions called Corner Displays. The Corner Displays are small and intimate, one room exhibitions in a corner of the museum which shed new light on a specific corner of the collections. Here you can explore new perspectives on famous art works in the collection, hidden gems from the museum's stores, and many other exciting stories relating to The Hirschsprung Collection.

See our current and upcoming exhibitions and Corner Displays here.

Additionally, you can join our events like concerts and activities for children held throughout the year. Each summer and through autumn holidays you can join our free guided gallery tours in English on selected Saturdays and Sundays at 12 PM.
