Friends of Heerup

The Friends of the Heerup Museum Society (Foreningen Heerup Museums Venner) was founded on December 14th 1999 with the aim of raising public awareness of Henry Heerup and the Heerup Museum. In their efforts to promote and generate interest in the Museum and its activities, the Friends help out in arranging lectures and concerts, coordinating volunteers and providing support for museum purchases and publications.

By joining the Friends of the Heerup Museum you can help to ensure the continuance and growth of the Heerup Museum. For those seeking more active involvement, we are always looking for volunteers to help out in the Museum Store or at special events.
