In a new and beautiful extension there are now effects from Johannes V. Jensen’s study, on loan from the National Museum of Denmark, placed in a new and exciting way.
The effects speak for themselves, but have been arranged in a way that resonate the poet’s life, the spirit and root of his poetry and his nature – and cultural philosophy.
Through sound and images the visitors gain an exciting insight into the author’s life and large literary production.
