ARoS Fine Art Museum

Recommended
This museum has been housed in a superb building in the heart of the town since 2004. Several levels of mezzanines are distributed around a vast hall with a glass roof and reached by a stairway winding around a lift shaft. From Your Rainbow Panorama by the artist Olafur Eliasson, on the roof, a colourful panorama of the town is laid out before you. The collection is divided into three sections: the Danish Golden Age (1770-1900), with a fine group of works by Wilhelm Hammershoi; Danish Modernism (1900-1960), which shows artists from the Cobra movement; the contemporary section presents international art and installations.
