Welcome to Iskunsten,
the only year-round exhibition of ice sculptures in Europe
Experience a unique exhibition of fantastic ice sculptures brought to life in the play created between the crystal clear ice and light.
Ice is alive. Ice moves. Ice changes.
Iskunsten is a permanent place of exhibition - some would call it a museum - however the art in here is anything but permanent. Even though we perceive ice as being in a solid, frozen state, it is actually not the case. Ice is alive. The ice is constantly working and evolving. The same sculpture can have a completely different look after a month.
"Do you want to be remembered as an artist, don't make ice art", was said by one of the artist on a working visit at iskunsten. An ice sculpture in Iskunsten has a life span of between four to six months, depending on size and shape. Therefor we attempt to change our exhibitions and sculptures every four months. You can keep updated on future exhibitions on this page.
We reopen on May 21st
Iskunsten is temporarily closed until May 21st, when we reopen both Iskunsten and Jyllandsakvariet.
We reopen with a new exhibition about the "Whales of the World". You can read much more about it in the coming weeks.

The only year-round exhibition in Europe
Ice art for everyone
As the only one of its kind, iskunsten in Thyborøn is open all year round. Unlike other exhibitions with ice sculptures, Iskunsten is not dependent on the right weather conditions.
From industry to artistry
In a old cold storage facility you can experience a unique exhibition of amazing ice sculptures. Iskunsten is permanent, but the sculptures and exhibition themes are changed continuously to ensure that there is always something to experience in Iskunsten.
The history of the freeze house
Experience the maritime history of Thyborøn
A maritime, authentic industrial building is the frame of the exhibition. Learn the history of the building, the ice industry, and the connection to the fishing industry in an interesting story build from pictures and video.
On may 21st at 11 a.m. we are reopening our doors with a brand new exhibition named "Whales of the World". The exhibition is created by the two skilled artists; Søren Brynjolf (pict.) and Vagn Iversen.
