  • 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.

  • We came at half two and started with coffee and wonderful homemade bread. The Café is staffed with a number of the inpatients, under the direction of a very knowledgeable lady who told little about the place. Good coffee and very cheap. After coffee, we visited the beautiful museum and got good advice from staff, so we also had seen some workshops. Can be recommended. Note the Café closes at 20:00.

  • I thought this was a very insightful museum with exhibitions of patient artwork and historical items relating to psychiatry. However as an international visitor I could only view at items and artwork with a little understanding as it was only in Danish. As a person involved and interested in mental health issues this disappointed me.
  • 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.
  • Good control. Nice rooms. Super food, and even cheap.

  • It is definitely a visit that is to go after.

Where to stay in Aarhus

For a price, you can stay close to the main sights of this charming city at one of the many hotels located in Aarhus' historical old town. While it may feel like a romantic small town with its cobbled streets, accommodations here, especially centrally located options or hotels along the marina, are just as expensive as in many other Scandinavian cities. Moderately priced hotels and hostels are limited, so if you are traveling on a budget, book early at a spot outside the city center. For nature lovers passing through the city, there are also campgrounds located near Aarhus in the beautiful surrounding forests.
