A centre of contemporary Danish Art

The beautiful and striking building housing Horsens Art Museum is located at the top of the park Caroline Amalie Lund whose beauty draws you in.

The focal point of the museum is contemporary Danish art and its collection gives you an insight into what is happening within Danish art. The collection includes works by major new Danish artists and has an experimental character ranging from the beautiful to the grotesque and through-provoking. The works give rise to dialogue, wonder and reflection.

So take your family and talk about art, beauty, life and society while touring the bright and welcoming galleries.

Experience vast collections of e.g. the following artists:

  • Bjørn Nørgaard
  • Erik A Frandsen
  • Michael Kvium
  • Nina Sten-Knudsen
  • Christian Lemmerz
  • Cathrine Raben Davidsen
  • Rose Eken


Denmark’s largest Michael Kvium collection

One of the central artists of the museum is the Horsens-born Michael Kvium, whose art has a whole gallery dedicated to it. The museum’s large collection of works is continuously rotated, so that you experience something new every time you visit. Kvium’s grotesque, fascinating and sometimes repulsive representation of the human body has made him one of the country’s most significant and popular visual artists. Kvium’s art parts the waters.


Exciting special exhibitions

Every year, Horsens Art Museum presents two special exhibitions as well as a number of smaller exhibitions of invited artists and the museums own vast collection. Why not by a year pass? That way, you can experience it all.


Bring along the young ones

You can take the entire family to the museum, including the children who can explore the art on their own terms. The museum has endeavoured to also create material for the youngest target group.


Much more than just a museum

Every year, Horsens Art Museum organises a number of concerts, events and talks for both adults and children. By way of example you can go detecting or go on a city walk and explore the street art.

You are also welcome to use the art museum as a living room. Read one of the many exciting books from the shop that has a selection of art supplies and gift ideas.


Sculptures in the park

In the park surrounding the museum, the Caroline Amalie Lund, you find several interesting sculptures. Have a look at Bjørn Nørgaard’s main work The Human Wall (DK: Menneskemuren) and Christian Lemmerz’ Gestalt (Todesfigur). Combiner your visit to the museum with a walk through the cosy park which is a popular oasis amongst local residents and guests alike. Here, you also find a playground and Horsens Museum which you can visit for free.
