A bit out of the city. Look for other things in the area to see as well to make the effort more worth it. Very unusual and cool building. Check the exhibitions beforehand, as they vary a lot (in my opinion). Nice shop and cafe.

experience modern/contemporary art and we went to see the exhibition on Kvium called Circus Europa. The exhibition is clearly a five star experience but Arken as such could use a better and more structured setup. It can be a bit difficult to find “the red...More

The museum is located 30 minutes from the city center. That means you have to invest certain effort to get there. if you have Copenhagen card that is not difficult. The problem is that you do not have much to see. Architecture is not so...More

You can see the famous works of Hirst, which definitely made this visit worth it. However, the other works weren't that amazing - there were a few good ones, but they weren't anything special.
