#4 of 13 in Museums in Esbjerg
Established in the 19th century, Ribe Kunstmuseum occupies a building originally designed as a luxury villa for a local fabric manufacturer. One of Denmark's oldest art museums, the building now contains a fascinating collection of masterpieces by the so-called "Golden Age" painters. You'll find Denmark's big-name artists here, including Jens Juel, Kristian Zahrtmann, C.W. Eckersberg, and L.A. Ring. The museum's riverside garden serves a backdrop for the collection--the area behind the gallery is open to visitors and features paths crossing over the river and leading to two other notable attractions, including a church from the 15th century.

  • Ribe is one of the oldest provincial art museums in Denmark and they were given help from Copenhagen from the outset to build the collection and therefore have most of the hot names from around the year 1900. Creyads, Ancher, LA Ring, Kristian Zahrtmann, Willumsen, Viggo Johansen. But they also have older things and the little modern art too. And they always have at least one current exhibit. Everything is beautifully exhibited in the nice but slightly small museum building

  • A beautiful old art museum, with a great little collection. A mini café in the basement. Has a nice park that goes down to the river and the bridge that leads further around the city. Saw the special exhibition about Zarthmann, which was very interesting.

  • A lovely small art museum with some permanent works and changing exhibitions. Good for discovering Northern Lights painters and enjoying the garden with its gazebo and sculptures.
  • Very decent, small town museum, with some nice&moving works by artists you probably never heard about. :)
