Stumbled on this on a cold Thursday night - open late and free entry = bonus! Excellent friendly staf. Good permanent collection plus a really well put together visiting exhibition on 1960's Danish artists which was a revelation. Decent gift shop with wide range of well priced and unusual gifts. You've got to go!

There were only three of us visiting the gallery the day I visited which made it pleasant. Interesting paintings, photos and fashion exhibition.

A former factory of garments now museum, shops, dining and best of all atmosphere. You have not been to Odense if you have not been there.

Loved my visit at Brandts Odense - true, I came specifically to see the Danish Fashion Now exhibition, but I was pleasantly surprised with the rest of the musuem as all, I didn't expect to find so many interesting and enjoyable modern and contemporary pieces! Turned out to be more enjoyable than the "big" must-see museums in Copenhagen. The only... More

It is four floor museum that each floor is different from each other. overall there are lots of slightly old painting which is nice to see how sort of advanced there were at the time. there is also a floor for kids to play that can be nice for grown ups too :)

This textile factory covered a large area in Odense, and has been transformed into a complex that includes several museums, cafes, stores, restaurants, and more - making it hard to review, since the site is always changing a bit, and because the museum shows vary in focus and quality. But generally speaking, this area is where many people go to... More

Visited the museum with some friends who where in from Copenhagen. Many of the exhibitions did not live up to the expectations and they generally need to be more interactive.

An old renovated clothing ("klaede" is a danish word for cloth when used in clothing) factory in the center of Odense was turned into a museum/building for various activities and house for exhibitions.  The exhibitions change frequently, so it would make little sense to list the current ones here. Although I think the exhibition on top floor is permanent. That... More

A very cool art gallery, was one of my highlights. They had a sensory installation (built for children but I still went in!) at the time that was just wonderful. Definitely worth a look at, plus it's Odense's more modern art space.
