Ribe Kunstmuseum, Ribe

4.4
#4 of 13 in Museums in Esbjerg
Established in the 19th century, Ribe Kunstmuseum occupies a building originally designed as a luxury villa for a local fabric manufacturer. One of Denmark's oldest art museums, the building now contains a fascinating collection of masterpieces by the so-called "Golden Age" painters. You'll find Denmark's big-name artists here, including Jens Juel, Kristian Zahrtmann, C.W. Eckersberg, and L.A. Ring. The museum's riverside garden serves a backdrop for the collection--the area behind the gallery is open to visitors and features paths crossing over the river and leading to two other notable attractions, including a church from the 15th century.

  • Ribe Art museum is a fine small museum and, on the other hand, the staff were approachable and, on the other hand, udstillingsmæssigt. The art museum is a nice house with a nice garden facing the Museum Ribe Å. It is idyllic. The art museum has a fine permanent exhibition and has exciting special exhibitions. At the moment there is a nice little exhibition with works by Per Kirkeby. A visit can be strongly recommended.

  • Many people had told me, that this museum was super good, and I was pleased to visit it and, among other things. see "Stevns Klint" of S, a group portrait of Martinus Rørbye and one of Hammershøjs dørbilleder. Just the three paintings were either mentioned in the summary text in the advertising leaflet distributed or as postcards, so I thought, of course, that everything was fine, and I could see the paintings "live". But no, they were not there. Also no message about whether they were lent to the restoration or else. Of course, I asked at the counter, and they were really helpful enough. They guessed a little on "variation in ophængningerne", "not in place from a previous exhibition", but was shown almost as ignorant as I was, of course, are the paintings not. in the same league as the Mona Lisa or Arnolfini-the wedding, but anyway. And you will not exhibit "Stevns Klint" in Ribe, then lending it to the Stevns Municipality. They will probably like to show it off.

  • The old beautiful building is beautifully with the garden down to the stream from which to get to the Museum via walkways. The premises have different colors, and they appear very elegant. There was a friendly service from all the staff we met.

  • Really fine images with good stories behind. Very friendly and helpful, if you have dirty shoes should you even have bags on them so you don't pollute. There is also a nice garden right next to a andesø. Really beautiful place. Can clear is recommended.
