Trip Planner: Europe / Denmark / Zealand / South Zealand / Ishoej Municipality / Ishoej / 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.

It was nice to walk around and look at pictures/figurines and get new impressions. At the moment there is an exhibition of Patricia Piccinini, which is exciting, scary and thoughtful at the same time. After we had walked around the museum we ate at the café-it was really delicious food we got and at very reasonable prices. Super Good trip!
Very interesting purpose built museum. Maybe odd looking from outside but the spaces it creates inside are great. Make sure you visit the cafe.
I absolutely recommend this museum!! Such a nice, clean and modern building with interesting exhibitions like Patricia Piccinini. Not so crowded and you can smell the sea outside
