Arken Museum of Modern Art features works of modern and contemporary artists, including eight works of the controversial British artist Damien Hirst. See some of Hirst's most famous works: a dead cow immersed in formaldehyde, a diamond skull, and dead butterflies glued to a canvas. The museum has collected around 400 post-war contemporary art pieces by artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Shirin Neshat, and Wolfgang Tillmans. The building itself is a work of art that takes the distinctive form of a ship stranded on the shore only few meters from the sea. Sit in the museum cafe, which hangs from the side of the building like a giant lifeboat. You can also stroll along the long sandy beach here.

Arken Museum of Modern Art reviews
A highlight of my trip to Copenhagen. It was quite easy to get to, about a 20min train ride from Copenhagen central to Ishoj - trains are very regular - and then a 20 minute brisk walk. I recommend...

We enjoyed the variety and extent of art, providing a marvellous picture of modern art. In a nautical style the building itself is a work of art, in the shape of an ocean liner. Before entering...

The golden colour Rocking Horse with the boy on it at the front of the museum entrance attracted me to come close to this place. Modern art is not really my thing so I didn't visit the museum. But...

Very interesting modern art museum located about 30 mins outside of Copenhagen city. There are also free artwork pieces located in various outdoor locations around the park outside of museum as well. Well worth a visit if you have time.
Excellent, incredible and lovely. The museum is lovely combination of modern art and nature. The cafe has unbelievable view to the sea, the landscape is very unique. Cafe offers nice selection of cold food (no warm dishes) which i think makes sense - it's really to avoid the smells of the kitchen in the museum. There are also benches and tables in the cloakroom where one can eat their own food. The art pieces are meaningful, unlike other modern art exhibitions. Also the permanent exhibitions are still relevant and interesting. I highly recommend to visit and revisit! The only downside is getting to the museum by public transport. Without a car it takes at least an hour!
If you love or are interested in paintings or modern art you will love this place very much. You can spend an entire day in here. If you are not into painting, then just spend couple of hours and then you can take a walk round the museum and go to the nearby beach.
It is an amazing museum and Leonora Carrington is even more. We walking from the train station to the museum, and be would have liked a few more signposts near the station to show us the way.
Amazing saw a kestrel in the nature reserve. Great sculpture garden. Loved the Leonora Carrington, very surreal and stimulating. Myths and fairy tales brought to life.
