Fodor's Expert Review KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art Aalborg

Aalborg Museum/Gallery

The imposing marble-and-glass structure of the North Jutland Museum of Modern Art was designed by architects Alvar and Elissa Aalto with Jacques Baruël. The architects skillfully laid out the interior to allow the natural Nordic light to flood the spaces, and a series of interior grids and partitions permit curators to tailor the space according to each exhibition, many of which are drawn from the museum's acclaimed permanent collection of 20th-century Danish and international art. The extensive grounds contain a manicured sculpture park and an amphitheater that hosts concerts and other performances. The structure, which dates to 1972, underwent a total renovation in 2014-15.
