Very friendly staff, nice coffee and cheesecake in the cafe, but the exhibitions were most enjoyable. Far more extensive than expected and nicely interactive. The (english!) texts were very well written and useful.

This is a wonderful collection of works made by Asger Jorn and collected by him. It is absolutely worth a detour!! Especially the tapestry "the long journey" is wonderfully displayed. It is nice to have lunch in the garden after your visit.
