This art museum has Asger Jorn as the main thema. It is placed really beautiful just by the river and the Woods in Silkeborg. The museum is beautiful and gives the Jorn paintings a beautiful house. There is a wide fange of different Jorn paintings. There is a small cafe and shop if you would like a Coffee or buy... More

The danish artist Asger Jorn has his own museum. There´s lots to see, a very productiv artist and lots to do, but for the grown up but also for kids.

Honestly I found the walk to the museum and the treed area outside along the river a lot more interesting and relaxing. There are so many beautiful buildings in this city and the museum is not one. If you have spare time I would visit it but if you have limited time I wouldn't go

If you really have nothing to do in Silkeborg can use 0,5 hour to see art of Jorn. I personally do not like it even have hard tried to understand and feel creations of Jorn. Better enjoy nature around the lake and river.

It was fascinating to see the different phases, influences and inspirations this man went through in... More

If you like the Cobra period, you will here found an gem... Almost everything is about Asger Jorn, and you will find Art from his long creative life. But of course there are other, things to look at, and you will for sure also like the sorroundings... This is my best place to advise in Silkeborg

This museum last year changed official name from Silkeborg Kunstmuseum to MUSEUM JORN. Museum Jorn is based on a big collection of paintings of the famous COBRA painter Asger Jorn. The museum in it itself is interesting and the selecting of COBRA painting is really impressive. If you are visting Jutland you ought to consider a visit at this museum... More
