This modern art museum is housed in a building with resolutely nautical architecture, designed by Søren Robert Lund, which plays an important role in the visitor experience. The central aisle, called the "axis of art", is the main exhibition area. There are a further three rooms, an auditorium and a café boasting lovely sea views through its glass walls. Contemporary Danish, Nordic and international works from the country's 26 art museums are presented in temporary exhibitions.
