Fuglsang Art Museum is an art museum set in rural surroundings in Guldborgsund Municipality on the island of Lolland in Denmark. It is part of the Fuglsang Cultural Centre. The museum features Danish art with an emphasis on artists and motifs of local provenance.Fuglsang Kunstmuseum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Toreby Edition.
The museum is located in a purpose-built building, designed by Tony Fretton. Noted for its integration with the surrounding architecture and landscape, the museum building won a 2009 RIBA European Award and was short-listed for the Stirling prize the same year.
An architecture competition for the design of a building was won by Tony Fretton in May 2005. Construction started in August 2006 and the museum was inaugurated in January 2008.
The Fuglsang Art Museum is located in a whitewashed, modernistic building, designed to fit into the existing architecture of the Fuglsang estate and the surrounding landscape.
The galleries are arranged around a long corridor which itself serves as a significant exhibition space. At the end of the corridor is a small room with three large windows, one of which is slightly offset from the axis and visible from the corridor. With no artworks displayed, it is entirely dedicated to contemplation and viewing of the exterior landscape.
On one side of the corridor are fairly small galleries with gold ornaments inspired by the architecture of the adjoining Fuglsang manor house. These are dedicated to smaller scale works. On the other side of the corridor are larger toplit galleries.

The museum has a very fine collection of Danish visual art throughout the ages. And their exhibition "Intense Lines" with Munch and Goldstein is very very nice.

Also the building was beautiful. The museum is relatively small and well-organized, waardoorhet with children is ideal, does not take too long. Also the fact that the children get free access makes the threshold lower. And, yes, even the children liked it. Highly recommended!
A great spot for meditation after the expo
Stunning grounds around the small garden to picnic in. Museum has one of the best views!
