To book teaching programmes and guided tours, please contact ARKEN Education.

If you need to cancel guided tours, please do so no later than seven days before the planned tour. In the event of a later cancellation, the museum will charge the full fee.

NOTE! Out of consideration for other visitors at the museum, group visitors who haven't booked a guided tour are kindly asked to notify us of their visit.



Coats and bags can be deposited at ARKEN's cloakroom. Lockers are available for a deposit of DKK 10. Large bags must be deposited at the cloakroom.


Packed lunches
School groups may have their packed lunch in the cloakroom where there are tables and chairs for your convenience. On fine days you may also wish to have your lunch outside where there are many excellent picnic spots, e.g. on the beach right next to ARKEN.


Respect your surroundings
ARKEN consists of large open spaces. This means that all conversation and noise is easily transmitted into adjoining spaces. We would therefore ask teachers to keep their classes around them, to make room for several guides in one room.

Out of consideration for other museum guests we also ask children not to shout, play or run around the museum.


ARKEN holds irreplaceable artworks. All visitors are expected to keep a safe distance from the works of art, to stay behind the grey lines on the floor, and  not to point at the works with fingers, pencils or other sharp instruments. Please instruct pupils to follow these sensible instructions.
