This is the place for ceramic, porcelain and art. Situated in an amazing building that combines the history of the area with an interesting new addition with the most amazing view of the water.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit in our beautiful town. Hindsgavl and the museum is linked through history, as you noticed. The house was build by the owner of the castle in 1857. Best wishes/Henny
