WELCOME TO BORNHOLM ART MUSEUM
You find Bornholm Art Museum located in a spectacular landscape between fields with Scottish highland cattle grassing and Døn Valley (Døndalen).
The white building is reaching out to the sea, and the famous Sanctuary Rocks (Helligdomsklipper) is just a walk away from the museum.
Bornholm Art Museum is considered one of the best examples of Danish modern architecture and has a unique and playful approach to bringing in the daylight.
The museum was built in 1993 and expanded in 2003. It is now housing 6-8 exhibitions every year along the museum's permanent collection.
The collection displays the development of art forms from the Danish Golden Age (1800-1850) to present as well as new and older crafts.
Everything presented at Bornholm Art Museum is related to Bornholm. Some artists were born here while others have spent a significant amount of time on the island.
