National Art Museum – Copenhagen

When we went to the art muesum we did a lot of fun stuff, but the things I liked the most are these:

1. We went to a kids art camp that you could paint, draw, water color, build, glue gun and other cool stuff. Ryan and I had so much fun, we came the next day too, while our parents watched a jazz concert. I painted a picture of a flower close up and built a “dream ladder.” They called it dream ladder and what it was is you would make a doll-sized ladder and put your dream on the top. It could be your dream when you grow up or a dream you had in your sleep. I did the dream when you grow up, because I have been having some really strange dreams lately. The lady that worked there was really nice and gave you tips and helped you out. We had a lot of fun!!!

2. We went into a room where there were spot lights that kept on moving around, music, and a slide show of random people dancing. Since nobody was in there my mom, Ryan and I broke out dancing and when other people came in, we could not help it, we just could not stop dancing!

3. There was a little golden retriever stuffed animal in the middle of one of the rooms with paintings. He had jester shoes and a french hat with a feather sticking out of it. There were other clothes on a shelf that you could dress him up in. So I dressed him up as an old fashion movie star. Ryan finished the last touch; he added dark black sun glasses and the dog was all set!!!

We had a really good day full of fun.

Thorvaldsens Museum

Yesterday we went to Thorvaldsen Museum which is a whole museum with one sculpter’s works. They had really cool virtual tour guide things which when you point at sensors near statues it will tell you all about the statue. Most of the statues were of Greek or Roman myths. So the guide tells you some myths as well. I thought it was one of the most fun museums I’ve been to.


Afterwards we went to the bibliotek, which we thought was a huge public library but found out it was a museum where you picked up library books that you ordered online. After that we found the real public library and got a card. We now have lots of English books (most are probaly from England). We got home just in time to go to the Dansk Design Center.

Statens Museum for Kunst

Today and yesterday we went to the Kunst art museum. We first went to the children’s section that had exibits about dreams. My favorite was a big red chair with an unnatral lump on it, but there were also lots of other good ones like the hand below that is attacking me. After we went to a little dark room with spotlights with videos of people dancing. Though it was designed for six year olds it was fun. We also went to a section with all of the famous stuff. There was a painting of a man who looked excactly like Lord Farquaad from Shrek.

The most fun part of the day was a workshop we did where you could build and paint stuff. First I painted a sea god type thing which took me a long time, and then I made a ladder going through clouds. Today we came back because our parents wanted to see some jazz (and Ellie and I are sick of jazz). I painted Pacman and built a cage with Hagar the Horrible in it. We might go again sometime later. I hope so!
