  • An exciting story about Ovartaci and others who were admitted to the Psyk. Worth a visit when they get moved to Skejby

  • The collection is very interesting. Especially when you get a little background history and knowledge of the artists. Certainly worth a visit.

  • Wonderful museum with some pretty curious yet fascinating artworks. A great way to gain some insight into minds that see the world in a different way. Highly recommended!
  • Very fitting for people with an interest in self learned artists/art, amateur artists/art, outsider artists/art. The museum exhibits art at the lower level and a history of the psychiatric hospital at the upper level. Recommended.
  • Perfect place to visit and understand how patients were taken care of and encouraged to demonstrate their skills and art
  • 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.
  • Great place to enjoy alternative art
