Located right by the Gudenå River, Museum Jorn could not wish for more beautiful natural surroundings to showcase their art. Not only does the art museum boast the famous Danish artist Asger Jorn’s entire art collection; it also houses exhibitions with the work of big international artists. “Museum Jorn is a hidden treasure. We have the second-largest art collection in Denmark, and we are the art museum in the country that lends out the most work,” says Lars Hamann, head of communications at Museum Jorn. Asger Jorn – the most influential artist in all of Scandinavia – donated his art collection to Silkeborg before his death in 1973.
