Kunsten, the Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, is like a sculpture growing out of the greenery to create a beautiful frame for world-class art. Every year Kunsten welcomes countless guests to explore the collection of modern art.

The world-knowing museum consists of an exhibition hall, classrooms, café, shop, sculpture park with a huge terrace and is built with a lot of marble, inside as well as outside.

 

In the past

The original building is from 1972 and is a piece of art on its own. The building is made to change according to the exhibits as the interior walls are moveable. The building was designed by Alvar Aalto in collaboration with Jean-Jacques Baruël and Elissa Aalto, and since then it has undergone restoration and rebuilding.
