Faaborg Museum

Faaborg Museum is a complete work of art comprising painting, sculpture, architecture and furniture design. The Museum is an architectural gem. The ‘Faaborg Chair’, which was created especially for the Museum, is an iconic piece of Danish modern furniture design. Many galleries, columns, mosaics and coloured cabinets combine to produce a special magic – it’s as if a little piece of the Mediterranean has appeared in southern Funen, Denmark. The Museum has so much to offer and we welcome you to a wonderful world of art.
