Museum Website

Elverhøj is a hidden gem in the heart of Solvang. With community support, the Museum documents the history of Solvang, celebrates our Danish culture and the Danish-American immigrant experience, and promotes fine art and artists.

It is one of the few museums outside of Denmark devoted to the colorful heritage of Denmark, it focuses on the history of Solvang, the Danish-American pioneer spirit, and the arts.

The historic hand-crafted structure was the dream home of artists Viggo Brandt-Erichsen and his wife, Martha “Patt” Mott Brandt-Erichsen. He was an internationally recognized painter and sculptor, and she was an accomplished painter and art instructor.
