Overview

Ribe Art Museum was establishedin 1891 in one of the town’s most impressive buildings, the cotton fabric manufacturer Balthazar Giørtz’s luxury villa, built in 1864. It is one of the oldest art museums in Denmark. And with a fascinating collection of Danish art from 1750 to 1950, it flourishes with masterpieces from the great groundbreaking periods of Danish art history. Ribe Art Museum reopened in 2010 after a thorough restoration of theinterior and exterior. Today it distinguishes itself as a modern museum – a unique space where art, architecture and landscape combine in a beautiful, atmospheric environment.

Fantastic gallery and building. Really some great masterpieces in here - from Danish Golden Age, Skaagen impressionists and some more recent works, including some paintings from Ribe.

I was there just as the new Danish Golden age exhibition was starting. The characterful gallery is a great setting for pictures of this era, and I particularly liked the portrait of Constantin Hansen by Christen Købke and the little girl writing by Christen Dalsgaard....More

Although we were getting a bit glassy-eyed and foot-weary, we took in the Ribe Kuntsmuseum, the local art museum housed in a handsome Dutch Renaissance mansion built in 1864 for a wealthy cotton manufacturer. He and his family only occupied it for a couple of...More

Good examples of Danish painters and a few sculptors. Enjoyed current shows of modern painting and winter themes. Nice way to learn about unknown artists and see scenes of Ribe in earlier periods.
