    Great pictures as usual.

    I also visited the Museum of modern art. No pictures from Guggenheim?? I liked that museum and building very much. While the other danes preferred shopping(!)...

    I was there while members of the Occupy Museums movement had tried successfully and otherwise to stage demonstrations outside as well as inside (5th floor) of the MOMA building.

    As a result the already strict security measures had intensified and the checking procedures were very lengthy and annoying.

    Part of the restrictions also included no picture taking at all in visiting exhibitions and only limited picture taking without flash in other areas.

    Mind you, I visited on a Friday a day in which, as you know admission is free from 4pm to 8pm.

    That usually results in huge crowds of visitors.

    Picture taking with all those boars taking their and their kids pics and videos in front of exhibits particularly up on the 4th and 5th floors where the paintings are, was a futile exercise.

    As you can also see from the exterior photos, it was a rainy day and people stayed in the museum longer making it even more crowded.

    I should have followed the example of your fellow Danes and gone shopping too in the particular day!

    Next time, I will make sure I will avoid Fridays and weekends!
