Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg Reviews
My “local” museum, that I visit often. Always exciting, always fascinating and always beautiful. Very friendly staff, and delicious food! more »
The perfect place to take our three-year-old - lots for us adults to see and a massive ‘creativity zone’ where she made art from objects/matchsticks etc for 45 mins. So good that the next day she... more »
We have been before, but whenever we venture to Aalborg, we always end up in this lovely museum. Friendly staff, and a permanent exhibition, which always allows room to discover something new, a tranquil garden with interactive art, and a cafe, which serves Michelin star quality food. I have to mention the cod dish specifically. Perfectly cooked fish and lovely, defined flavors that surprise the pallet. In short, it is a divine plate of food at a very reasonably price indeed!
It's good to see a museum that encourages young people to discover the wonders of contemporary art. On my visit the vast majority of people were of the younger generation, many making their own sketches & drawings & maybe producing future generations of artists in their own right. But this is somewhere for all generations to experience the wonders of modern art, don't miss it if you are in the area
