Wegner Museum Tønder


In 1995 the water tower in Tønder underwent a radical reconstruction and converted into an exhibition tower in which to display  some of Hans J. Wegner’s best known chairs. The conversion of the tower into a museum was made possible through the support and a grant from the A. P. Møller fund. The Tower was inaugurated by Denmark’s  Queen Ingrid and opened to the public, 12 August 1995.

The conversion included a conference room on the top floor of the tower accomodating 25 PP503 Round Chairs and a specially commissioned table designed by Marianne Wegner.


The top floor of the Water Tower furnished by PP Møbler offers panoramic veiws over the South Jutland contryside.


In 2014 the Museum published a book to celebrate the Centenary of Wegner’s birth.
