Sorø is located 80 km south west of Copenhagen. You can reach the museum by train or by car:
Intercity trains serve the Sorø Station twice an hour from Copenhagen (50 minutes ride) and Funen/Jutland.
Bus line 421 and 422 departs from the station. The bus stops at Holberg Arkaden, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the museum.
You might also walk (2 kms) from the station to the museum, passing the beautiful lake, forrest, Sorø Academy and Sorø Church on the way.
On the highway E20 take exit 37 towards Sorø. Follow the signs to the city center. The museum is located on the main street of Sorø, Storgade. If you’re planning to visit by car, please be aware that the museum doesn’t offer parking facilities. But free parking is available close by in the center of Sorø.
Sorø Art Museum was founded on May 29, 1943, on the initiative of the Soran Society. The museum is located in a listed property built in 1832 as a residence for the estate manager at Sorø Academy.
In 2011, the museum was expanded with an award-winning new extension designed by Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects. The extension is a fine example of how modern architecture integrates with an existing building while respecting its history and the historical surroundings.
The museum’s collection currently comprises approximately 2,500 works spanning over 350 years of Danish art. Enjoy works by the most important artists in Danish art history from the 18th century to the present day. In addition, the museum has two special collections of Russian art: Russian art from 1870-1930, donated by Hermod Lannung, and the country’s largest and finest collection of Russian icons from 1500-1900, donated by Per Schrøder, Hermod Lannung, and Lorentz Jørgensen.
Rights and Image Usage
Large parts of Sorø Art Museum’s collection are, due to their age, free from copyright restrictions. You are therefore allowed to use these for any purpose without seeking permission, if you credit the source.
Images Covered by Copyright
As a general rule, works are subject to copyright when the artist is currently alive or has been dead for less than 70 years.
In these cases, you must seek permission to use the image from the rights owner of the work. VISDA – Visual Rights Denmark manages the rights for most visual artists in Denmark and internationally. You can always contact VISDA if you are unsure who owns the rights to the image or have questions regarding copyright. Learn more at visda.dk.
When using the museum’s images, the following information should be provided alongside the image:
- Artist’s name, Title of the work, and the production year
- That the work is owned by Sorø Art Museum
- Photographer’s name (e.g., as is often the case: Anders Sune Berg)
- The permission to use reproductions only covers the museum’s photo rights and not the artist’s (or heirs’) potential copyright. The museum encourages contacting VISDA (Visual Rights Denmark) regarding this matter. Additional requirements for crediting may apply if the artist’s rights are managed by VISDA.
- Reproductions of works must not be cropped, overlaid, or resized larger than the original without special permission from the work’s copyright holder.
