#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.

  • This Liebe Museum is located on the east side of the River Liebe, near the New Town Hall. The building is located in the former building. Modern paintings are enriched from the early modern era.

  • Small collection but interesting. Nice building, nice museum shop. The building looks beautiful inside and the fixed collection is quite interesting. We saw the exposition on Kristian Zahrtmann, from September 14 there is an exhibition devoted to Edvard Munch. The museum has a beautiful garden and there is a Cafe.

  • A lovely small art museum with some permanent works and changing exhibitions. Good for discovering Northern Lights painters and enjoying the garden with its gazebo and sculptures.
  • Very decent, small town museum, with some nice&moving works by artists you probably never heard about. :)
