About the Museum

At Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts 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, as well as 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 6,000 works by Carl-Henning Pedersen and his wife Else Alfelt, which Carl-Henning Pedersen himself generously donated to Herning City prior to the opening of the museum in 1976. Visitors will always find something new to explore in the ever-changing exhibitions from both the museum’s own rich collection and works on loan by other artists that shed light on new aspects of Carl-Henning Pedersen's and/or Else Alfelt's oeuvres.
