Arken - or The Ark - has since its construction back in 1996 been housing modern and contemporary art-works, both Danish and international. Inspired by the Biblical story and the maritime spirit, it is rising up from the white sands of Ishøj Beach Park, right in the middle of Køge Bay - and just 20 km South from Copenhagen city centre. Besides the museum’s permanent collection, which consist of more than 400 artworks, Arken continuously hosts temporary exhibitions of world-famous masters like Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Frida Kahlo, Van Gogh and many others. The visitors can look forward not only to the museums’ artworks and architecture, but also to exploring Arken’s sculpture park and taking a walk along the sandy beach and the marina. The beach cafe offers a pleasant wrap-up to the tour with delicious coffee, cakes and small-bites. An outdoor playground by its side will secure active entertainment for the kids and a few quiet moments for the parents. Located off the beaten tourist track Arken offers a relaxing break from the city rush with an organic combination of art and architecture delights, as well as natural beauties.

Dan Hill Modern art in an idyllic location 3 years ago
Set on the coast at Ishøj, south of Copenhagen, and nestled between a harbour and the coast stands Arken Museum of Modern Arts. What I like about visiting Arken is the continual rotation of exhibitions - many of which are though-provoking. A particular favourite of mine was Patricia Piccinini's thought provoking world of semi-human semi-imagined creatures which was on exhibition until recently. The museum is spacious, and the cafe on the upper floor serves a good selection of goodies.
