About Trapholt

Trapholt is a museum for modern art and design.

Trapholt presents a steady succession of exhibitions on art, design and crafts and also boasts its own collections, including a large collection of Danish furniture design.

Inaugurated in 1988, the museum is located in a scenic area overlooking the Kolding Fjord. It is set within a large sculpture park featuring works by contemporary Danish artists.

The museum’s architecture is an attraction in itself. Arranged around a central museum street, the exhibition rooms offer many fascinating spaces to explore. Outside, a powerfully sculptural wall separates the museum from the park

Arne Jacobsen’s summerhouse

Arne Jacobsen’s modular house, Kubeflex, allows all those with interest in design and architecture to explore an immersive environment designed entirely by Jacobsen. Created by the internationally renowned Danish architect and designer in 1969–70, the house is the only one of its kind. Previously used as a summerhouse by the Jacobsen family, the house is now on display at Trapholt, furnished with Arne Jacobsen’s own designs. We offer daily guided tours of the house.

Richard Mortensen

A special room dedicated to Richard Mortensen’s paintings was created in close collaboration with the artist himself – one of the most important Danish artists of the twentieth century.
