ARKEN Museum of Modern Art is a modern and contemporary art museum located in the suburb Ishøj near Copenhagen, Denmark. The museum has a collection of around 400 contemporary art pieces, including works by Damien Hirst, Olafur Eliasson, Ai Wei Wei, Jeppe Hein, Wolfgang Tillmans and Elmgreen and Dragset. ARKEN’s famous maritime-inspired building is a monumental landmark in the windy beachscape on the verge of Øresund, and it’s hard to believe that the museum is only about 30 minutes from central Copenhagen. ARKEN has a great café and museum shop, as well as workshops for children every weekend.
