The 2,500 square meter museum will be situated in Varde, a small town in the south of Denmark, within a former WWII bunker. Tucked into the shorelands of Blåvand, the new museum will be fully integrated into the landscape and will, contrary to its previous use and function, boast natural light and openness.

The museum will be composed of four main volumes, each housing different institutions-a bunker museum, an amber museum, a history museum and a special exhibition gallery. Most of the content will be organized around a central square carved into the dunes. Judging from the renderings, the galleries will receive plenty of sunlight and will offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
