The hunt for history

City walk on your own with quiz questions for the whole family. 

The city walk is suitable for a group of 2-6 people who are curious about the city's details, skewed angles and stories about people and houses.

When the whole trip is gone and all the quiz questions are solved and the password found, there is a prize.

Art, culture and exciting events

Odsherred Art Museum

In the stately building 'Hvide Hus' is Odsherreds Kunstmuseum, which shows exhibitions of art with a focus on the landscape and on Odsherred. 

The museum is also home to the works of the Odsherred painters. The artists' colony, which settled in Odsherred in the 1930s, was inspired by light, life and the landscape. The contrasts of the landscape - the hills, the dramatic slopes, the proximity to the sea and the burial mounds. But to a large extent also the markers of everyday life: telephone poles, roads and small houses. And of course the special light. 

See the short intro video about the Odsherred painters who were active from 1930-1970.

The museum is open all year round and has a small shop and a coffee shop. See more below “Your visit”.

You can experience that

Explore the special exhibitions with living artists working with landscapes, Odsherred or West Zealand as inspiration. 

Or get perspective on parts of our large art collection through the smaller exhibitions. It can be the Odsherred painters, the Swane artist family or other artists associated with the area.

Click museum guide (pdf), and explore the museum for yourself. The guide contains small questions for reflection - for the whole family.

'Hvide Hus' is located in the middle of Asnæs, and the architect Marius Pedersen was behind the building from 1917. He is known from the Bedre Byggeskik movement. His own home in Holbæk on Bakkekammen 45 is a great example of Better Building Practice.
