Create an itinerary including Arken Museum of Modern Art
Arken Museum of Modern Art features works of modern and contemporary artists, including eight works of the controversial British artist Damien Hirst. See some of Hirst's most famous works: a dead cow immersed in formaldehyde, a diamond skull, and dead butterflies glued to a canvas. The museum has collected around 400 post-war contemporary art pieces by artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Shirin Neshat, and Wolfgang Tillmans. The building itself is a work of art that takes the distinctive form of a ship stranded on the shore only few meters from the sea. Sit in the museum cafe, which hangs from the side of the building like a giant lifeboat. You can also stroll along the long sandy beach here.

  • We enjoyed the variety and extent of art, providing a marvellous picture of modern art. In a nautical style the building itself is a work of art, in the shape of an ocean liner. Before entering...

  • Very interesting modern art museum located about 30 mins outside of Copenhagen city. There are also free artwork pieces located in various outdoor locations around the park outside of museum as well. Well worth a visit if you have time.
  • If you love or are interested in paintings or modern art you will love this place very much. You can spend an entire day in here. If you are not into painting, then just spend couple of hours and then you can take a walk round the museum and go to the nearby beach.
