New museum in the making

Øhavsmuseet takes you back to Nature

LOOK FOR YOUR ROOTS, FIND YOURSELF, AND DISCOVER THAT YOU ARE PART OF SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER IN A WORLD, WHERE EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.

Nature has always played a vital part in people’s lives. However, in the footsteps of industrialisation and urbanisation, we have grown more distant to Nature. Many of us long to reunite with its peaceful and raw beauty and Øhavsmuseet offers you the opportunity to experience Nature in many different ways.
Our mission is to show, how human interaction with Nature has changed in the course of history and we present new paths to tread, where you can leave your own imprint.

Explore the forces of Nature – and challenge them

Øhavsmuseet – the archipelago museum of Southern Funen – is no ordinary museum. It is the first museum in Denmark that explores history, nature and psychology to develop a better understanding of ourselves.
We believe that experiencing and exploring Nature make us wiser as to our roots, our identity, and our path. Nature helps us find our place in the world. Together with Øhavsmuseet, you can explore the forces of Nature – and challenge them.

Sense the impact of Nature

The Øhavsmuseet will not only preserve, we also want to change. Therefore, our primary focus is not focusing on artifacts, but on you. We believe that sensing is vital to understanding. You will be benefitting from all your senses, when you visit the Øhavsmusset. Here, you can experience at first hand, how Nature affects you.
We promise that your visit to Øhavsmuseet will be something you can feel. Not just with your mind, but also with your body.

First large exhibition opens on 1st May 2021

The new museum embraces both indoor experiences – and outdoor activities that offer you the chance to explore Nature together with us, on your own, or both combined.

The new Øhavsmuseum is founded with the financial support of Denmark’s General Budget, Nordea-fonden, and the municipality of Faaborg-Midtfyn.

The exhibition is created in close co-operation with the designer company Torden & Lynild.
