  • Beautiful museum, both the buildings and the art. The service was surprisingly good. I felt welcome and well informed already at the entrance. Both food and coffee, and, not least, the staff of the service was as one might wish it to other museums learned something of. Thousand thank you for a lovely visit.

  • Nice location in the Woods, access to museum and food in cafe'en included in the price, but the accommodation was in a building that was almost unfit for habitation. The staff at cafe'en and at the Museum very nice and pleasant and as a day trip, it is a trip worth it, as also the Park has fine art to offer.

  • The old water kuranstalt Silkeborg Bad is now Art center with changing exhibitions and an outdoor sculpture park, where you both can enjoy the art and the glorious surroundings. The café was closed the day we came to visit.

  • Museum built in an area full of underground bunkers from WW2, now in pleasant parkland with imaginative outdoor sculptures to enjoy.
  • The art in show wasbl very inspiring
  • To be fair, I must say that we (1 adult and 3 teenagers) have visited the Art museum but not the Bunker museum. This museum is actually the poor child at the same site where the Art Center. There are several bunkers but the museum is located in the Bertha bunker; a smaller bunker. Despite its small size houses an impressive collection of mainly German military objects from WWI and WWII. To see everything, impresses and is also perfectly preserved. Definitely worth a look! The present Guide know very much and speaks reasonable English and some German. What is most special, is that there are rifles and pistols are what you may touch and stick (of course protection of dangerous ammunition). Never experienced before! The bunker is disabled to reach because it is bad under the ground is located. Free and spacious parking lot. The bunker museum can be found behind the Art Center building to the waterfront. Sandwich or cake is for sale in the snack bar in the Art Center, terrace.

  • The Centre is well worth a visit at any time of year. Complement EVS. the visit with a scenic hike of approximately 3 km around Ørnsø. The area around Ørnsø offers highly varied scenery, from open meadows and dense Willow scrub to high-boled forest of rødel and beech. On my last trip I was lucky enough at close range to see otters cheerful by Lysbro Å.

  • Nice place in the middle of nature and forest. Bunker Museum is clearly worth a visit if you are just interested in the war, or at least the story on the spot.
