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.
