A well-designed, thought-provoking museum with interactive displays, in a beautiful building with a café serving home-made cakes. When I visited it had one of the Aarhus 2017 exhibitions, 'Venus envy' (collage).

I had a delicious lunch with a freind in the museum cafe, and then we went round the museum, wanting particularly to see the exhibition of wedding dresses. The meal was very good and the exhibition excellent.
