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!

Loved my visit at Brandts Odense - true, I came specifically to see the Danish Fashion Now exhibition, but I was pleasantly surprised with the rest of the musuem as all, I didn't expect to find so many interesting and enjoyable modern and contemporary pieces! Turned out to be more enjoyable than the "big" must-see museums in Copenhagen. The only... More

It is four floor museum that each floor is different from each other. overall there are lots of slightly old painting which is nice to see how sort of advanced there were at the time. there is also a floor for kids to play that can be nice for grown ups too :)
