Museum of modern and contemporary art that is known for also functioning as an experimentarium where both children and adults can have surprising experiences.

Esbjerg Art Museum is a museum of modern and contemporary art that is known for also functioning as an experimentarium where both children and adults can have surprising experiences.

At the museum, the artists are often given a free rein to try out unusual ideas, and traditional views of what an exhibition is are continuously challenged and rethought. This means that art is presented in new ways - for example in conjunction with music and science.

In the museum's Aesthetic Laboratory everyone is invited to experiment with colours, illusions and optical tricks, while the many interactive info posts encourage personal involvement and contemplation.

In the scent installation Wittgenstein’s Garden you have to use your sense of smell to evoke your own images, while The Open Stores has pull-out walls full of paintings.
