Winter break at ARKEN

.

kl.
> Tickets

The school winter break is a great opportunity to experience the kid-friendly exhibition Bricks — Per Kirkeby. For once, you're allowed to climb, touch, build and play in the 150-metre-long Art Axis, where Per Kirkeby's monumental brick sculptures stand. You can also work hands-on with the material in the Bricks & Pieces family workshop, where both children and adults can participate in the building community to build in sustainable materials such as clay, rubble, bamboo and grass. This workshop is inspired by Kirkeby's childhood spent playing in the Emdrup Junk Playground, where he built with the available materials and created new types of artwork. Throughout the exhibition period, our guests have built creative sculptures and dreamed up new worlds. And this is your last chance to participate before the workshop closes on 25 February. The workshop is open Wednesday-Sunday, 11.00-16.00, and registration is not required. The exhibition continues on Museum Island, where you might be lucky enough to catch a ray of sunshine in the beautiful landscape. In the warm indoors, our café offers a delicious lunch. We look forward to seeing you during the school winter break, 10-25 February.

The architecture workshop and building community Bricks & Pieces is for both kids and adults. It is a place where young and old can dream up and build the sustainable living forms and communities of the future. In the workshop, you can use your imagination to build with rubble, clay and other recycled materials and add your creation to the communal building project. On the big wall, you're invited draw your dream buildings of the future. This workshop is inspired by Per Kirkeby's childhood spent playing at the Emdrup Junk Playground, which set him on the path to art and architecture. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Bricks & Pieces is generously supported by REALDANIA.

Kid-friendly food and staff in the café

Children of all ages are welcome everywhere at ARKEN, including in the café of course, where we offer healthy, classic children's favourites.

Free parking or bring your bike on the S-train

ARKEN has free parking. It is also free to bring bicycles on the S-train, and the bike ride from Ishøj Station (2.6 km) to the museum is an experience in itself — the red, dancing lampposts by Jeppe Hein light the way to the museum.
