The starting point for the exhibition operations has been the top-quality West Coast Art Collection which, currently comprising more than 1000 works, was made accessible to the public. The collection focuses on painting from four littoral countries of the North Sea ‒ Norway, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands – in the period from 1830 to 1930. The collecting concept encompasses the great landscapes as well as the living and working environment along the west coast.


As a result of private donations and permanent loans from private collections, the first-rate collection continuously grows, expanding year after year. Please contact us for more information regarding your support!



Donations by will

We are extremely grateful when people such as the museum’s founder and patron, Prof. Frederik Paulsen, do a great deal to help the Museum Kunst der Westküste continue to pursue its mission.


It is a particular honour to us when our museum receives a donation by will. Are you interested in expressing your appreciation for artistic work in a lasting way and consider our museum in your last will? We would be very much obliged to you for this special form of commitment. We will gladly advise you about the individual options – please do not hesitate to contact us.
