We visit the museum for the first time last year, great surprise. So we had to come again and this time it was just as great. A new exhibition by Fulby, a married couple that makes ceramics. What a great exhibition, lots of beautiful pieces and a video explaining the couples technics.

This is a lovely moderately sized museum dedicated to modern and recent historic functional and sculptural ceramics. The museum has an excellent collection of Royal Copenhagen ceramics through the years, but it also has lots of examples of modern art ceramics. The museum has a small cafe and a gift shop.

With it's recently open extension to it's gallery this is truly Denmark's premier ceramic arts museum. An excellent historical exhibition of both commercial and art pieces plus a contemporary gallery of more recent pieces. Much of Danish modern ceramics use the "pot" as a canvas for decoration. Certainly the present exhibit has a fabulous collection of these works. Lunch is... More
