The collection isn't great but if you want some adventures on the go, consider visiting. It takes 2 transports to go to Arken from Copenhagen center (train and bus), and you can enjoy views of quiet suburbs when on the train. The architecture of the museum building is great, some nice installations inside. I loved "classical" part of the exhibition... More

I was visiting this great museum of modern art outside Copenhagen on an exceptionally bright and sunny day. Our main purpose for coming here was to have a look at the Bjoern Winblad exhibition, and it really turned out to be an amazing experience. It is the most perfect museum for exhibiting this artist's artwork. We finished off with a... More

Strong collection of contemporary art, the architecture is suggestive too, and at times, better than the artwork. Some masterful works in the collection - the Damien Hirst Cow, when the light shines through the ceiling window is almost spiritual. The room full of Reyle's bright candy- wrapping collages are stunning too. A lot of the works are great for 'happy-snappers'... More

Very nice museum of mostly modern art. Nice exhibitions. You can bring children as there are activities for Them too. At the beach of Ishøj. Also very close to the leisure harbour. The restaurant at the museum is recommendable.

This is one of the best art galleries i have ever been to (and i have been to a lot) Focusing on contemporary art the building itself is worth the trip alone. The exhibition space is well lit and the galleries full of the best from around the world. The cafe has superb views over the sea and the shop... More

This 20 years old modern art museum south of Copenhagen has had several interesting and very good special exhibitions during the years. The reason for our last visit was thus a very good exhibition with the Skagen-painters P.S.Krøyer and M. Ancher. The permanent collection has contemporary art from 1990 - today by Danish/Scandinavian and some international artists, among other Damien... More

Take a trip to Arken in Ishøj. Enjoy the art . Go to their excellent cafe. And take a walk in the wonderfull surroundings.. Look at the internet site to find out which artist are on the program. After the visit go to the nearby town Koege.
