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.

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.
