Once this was a museum for the more experimental art, but now they have the full range. And this is why they have an exhibition with danish artist Vilhelm Lundstrøm, one of my favorites. And what a great exhibition, with Lundstrøms paintings and Finn Juhls and P.H´s design. One of the best exhibitions I've seen in a long time

If you have days in Odense, you should definitely stop by the Brandts museum. Great with kids and without, we've been with the kids (age 4 and 1) a few times and it never disappoints. Make sure you check their website for what expo is on. We've just visited the Disney one and the kids loved it!

I came here on a short day trip to Odense, and found the museum to be fairly interesting. It is not comparable to Louisiana of course, but it has some uniquely Danish exhibits which are quite interesting.

I visited Brandts museum by myself on a late and very quiet Sunday afternoon in the beginning of March. I rarely visit Odense but this time I happened to be there with extra time on my hands and thought I should explore the city a bit. Initially, I wanted to visit the H.C Andersen museum but decided it was bit... More

First of all Brandts museum for modern art is located in a great place, in the old factory in the centre of the city next to shops, clubs, restaurants, bars. It is ideal place to hide from rain and get some culture into you. Every Thursday the entry is free from 17 o'clock to 21. Fine mixture of modern art... More

Stumbled on this on a cold Thursday night - open late and free entry = bonus! Excellent friendly staf. Good permanent collection plus a really well put together visiting exhibition on 1960's Danish artists which was a revelation. Decent gift shop with wide range of well priced and unusual gifts. You've got to go!

There were only three of us visiting the gallery the day I visited which made it pleasant. Interesting paintings, photos and fashion exhibition.
