ARKEN - Museum of Modern Art for Events

In the form of a stranded ship, the ARKEN - Museum of Modern Art welcomes you on an art island about 20 minutes by car south of Copenhagen. In addition to an extensive and high-class collection of contemporary art, it offers an extraordinary setting for private and business events. Whether a small meeting or large events with up to 700 people, conferences, workshops and presentations or film screenings - everything is possible.

The Venue

Inaugurated in March 1996 by Queen Margrethe II, the museum has an unusual external design that is already captivating. The impressive architecture provides a unique flair and special inspiration inside. With a concert and conference hall, a film hall, the Damien Hirst Gallery and several smaller rooms, there is the perfect setting for every occasion.

Outside, The Art Island Sculpture Park is just waiting to be explored by you and a stroll along the beach is the perfect way to clear your head.

The Service

Of course the competent staff of the house is already at your disposal during the planning of your tailor-made event. Modern technical equipment guarantees smooth processes and the ARKEN cook will spoil you with her culinary team.

Exciting guided tours through the house are offered as a supporting programme or incentive, and there are also half-day and full-day workshops.
