Personally, I really like Jorn, and the museum was a great experience. I especially liked to see the different linocuts found in a suitcase. Great way to spend a few hours and the staff was really friendly and knowledgeable.

Very friendly staff, nice coffee and cheesecake in the cafe, but the exhibitions were most enjoyable. Far more extensive than expected and nicely interactive. The (english!) texts were very well written and useful.

Went to watch the brilliant work of Asger Jorn and found so much more. The collection of COBRA work is really magnificent and we brought both small children (5-7) and teenagers (13-16), who really enjoyed - as did the parents - the interactive parts of...More
