We took a train to Arken, got a taxi from the station but walked back - it's a fair track but interesting. The Museum is a spectacular building right by the sea, definitely worth exploring outside. We saw the Gerder Wegener - The Danish Girl - exhibition, good. For me the fabulous Bjorn Wiinblad exhibition was maybe my favourite of... More

We were very impressed not only with the variety and great collection of the art work, the building is itself quite a masterpiece as the old and the new are blended so well together.

Five stars don't do justice to the experience! Even if we hadn't seen the fascinating exhibitions, the trip in a snowstorm would have been worth it, just for sitting in the cafe and gazing out at the sea, over the snowy landscape; also, for the experience of the space, the architecture of the building and the fabulous design shop. But... More

After visiting the Louisiane museum of modern art we also decided to visit the Arken museum. A big part of the museum wasn´t accesible to the public (they were busy setting it up) this meant that we were only able to see about half of the museum (we checked online before visiting the museum and didn´t see any kind a...

Both my daughter and I are avid fans of Bjørn Wiinblad and were absolutely blown away by the exhibition of his fantastically creative art. His gobelins, glass and porcelain as well as his incredible use of colours and designs really was exciting and inspiring. Probably one of the very best Museum exhibitions of Bjørn Wiinblad's work ever seen in Denmark,... More

Architecturally interesting modern art gallery in an unusual building almost on the beach. This autumn 2015 Bjørn Wiinblad - Danish Designer - is featured and the entrance is 95 dkk (12 euro). Nice shop indoor as well as a small cafe. Train to Ishøj and then the local bus to Arken. Finish the museum day with a brisk walk on... More

Architecturally interesting modern art gallery. Excellent collection of Damien Hirst pieces. A sprinkling of other good works throughout the innovative spaces. Not in the same league as Louisiania, but I suspect that it will improve over time as it deepens its collection and develops the outdoor spaces (the area is currently a bit of a construction site)
