Keep warm

Keep warm - and keep our sculptures safe

By the entrance you will, during summer, get a blanket to wrap around you. It is not only meant for to keep warm, but also so that you don't give your excess heat to the sculptures, which can effect their surface.

In the winter months your own outerwear is often enough, but you are of course always welcome to borrow a blanket to help keep warm.

The temperature

The temperature in the exhibition room is often between -5 and -15 degrees celcius.

Enjoy your packed lunch

You are very welcome to enjoy your brought food in our cozy areas with tables and chairs. You will find the tables in the "warm room" where our historical exhibition is.

We do not have a café on sight and do not sell food at Iskunsten.

Please note, that even our "warm room" gets cold during winter.
