The Museum of Religious Art
Designed by the local architect Poul Jørn Poulsen, the museum holds the originals of Bodil Kaalund's Bible illustrations as part of its permanent collection. The design of the building, with the extensive use of concrete and glass, is distinctively modern. Yet the general impression is one reminiscent of the old pavillion that used to stand here, but was consumed by fire in 1988.
In 1998 an extension was added to the museum, nearly doubling its size. The new wing nestles close to the slope behind the building, thus forming a natural and integral part of a whole.
The aim of the museum is to show how art, throughout the ages, has been constantly inspired by the fundamental and existential questions of life.
