Kunsten - Museum of modern Art Aalborg

Kunsten - museum of modern art - in Aalborg houses a permanent collection of Danish and international art from around 1900 to the present. The impressive building was designed by renowned architects Elissa and Alvar Aalto, and Jean-Jacques Baruel.

The museum contains special exhibitions, a sculpture park, an amphitheatre, concerts, seminars and films.

Not just a unique collection – the building is unique too
The museum is the only one outside of Finland designed by Alvar Aalto. The architectural icon in white marble houses an exclusive collection of modern art from both Danish and international artists.  

The museum is famous for its beautiful natural light transmitted down onto the works of art via parabola-shaped skylight constructions. But also the layout of the museum is excellent as the design makes it easy and accessible to walk around in. A system of moveable walls makes it easy to alter the size and layout of  the space according to the particular requirements of individual exhibitions.

Beside the exhibition the museum also has a shop, a nice foyer and a coffee in the basement.
