Must see · Art Museum · Museum
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.

  • Awesome museum.. I just loved it. Lots of stuff we can explore here. Perfect outing plan for a day with family. Museum is located close to the beach. Enjoyed the walking in the beach. Museum has cafe shop and gift shops. If you wish you can buy it.
  • Wonderful and wondrous museum with Changing collections of modern art. From paintings to sculpture to multimedia. Loved it and so did my two sons age 10 and 13. Beatiful building too surrounded by the sea, beach and dunes. Definitely worth it and not to miss if you take a Copenhagen card.
