  • Exciting museum at psychiatric hospital in Risskov. Both the historical setting of the early Danish State hospital and the beautiful images of Ovataci as well as all the other beautiful people pictures and sculptures.

  • The Museum's main collection is Ovartaci, but also other patients at the Psychiatric Hospital has exhibited pictures. Really exciting museum with many fine pictures.

  • Completely clear a museum that has to be experienced. Has worked at the hospital so it was exciting to see it was a good way to talk to kids about mental disorders. They got an insight into how it was and is and got experienced art in a different way.

  • Bottom floor has an art collection (quite ok!) and the top floor is a bit chaotic collection of rooms with furniture and items from the hospital's past: a library, printing room, dining room. Do not expect to witness a real historical hospital ward.
  • A very special art museum there hiding in the old psychiatric hospital in Risskov. The museum displays art of the most talented patients in the past but has also held exhibitions of many others with different mapping to the site over the years.

They will apparently move it all to the Skejby if they possibly can raise money for the
