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.

Arken is relatively easy of access from Copenhagen main station on the S line to Ishoj. At Ishoj there is the choice of taking a short taxi drive (my choice in winter), walking or waiting for a local bus (about one per hour). We fell foul of bus timings on the return journey and found the route marking on the... More

We were there to see the Hundertwasser exhibition and it was beautifully set up. Location is good even if you use public transport.

This modern - ultra modern! - museum of contemporary art, built in the Ishhoj suburb of Copenhagen close to the seashore, looks from the outside like some kind of futuristic ocean liner, and holds within a host of striking and memorable exhibits. It has works by Scandinavian and other internationally recognised artists, including Damien Hirst, but for me its most... More

We went having tried Louisiana but this is for hardened modern art lovers - we genuinely didn't get some of it - some of it was quite upsetting too but I guess this is what it's meant to do. It's a great building but it's quite expensive so again go if you're a fan not if you're passing by.
