About the Museum


At Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelt’s Museum we welcome you to a magical art experience and a comprehensive museum programme of concerts, lectures, guided tours, activities for children, temporary exhibitions of CoBrA related artworks, and many other cultural activities. The museum building is an aesthetic marvel with architecture and ceramic decorations by Carl-Henning Pedersen designed to embrace and display the world of art. Where architecture ends, art begins – and vice versa.


The heart of Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum is the unique collection of over 6000 works by Carl-Henning Pedersen and his wife Else Alfelt, respectively, which Carl-Henning Pedersen himself generously donated to Herning City. For visitors there are always new experiences to be had, as displayed artworks are replaced with selected paintings from the museum’s rich and varied art collection several times a year. Besides exhibitions the museum also offers lectures, concerts, tours, and children-oriented activities.
