Reform of museum subsidies


A majority in Parliament agreed to change the funding mechanism for museums, providing an extra 75 million DKK a year. The 95 state-recognized museums receive almost half a billion DKK a year in subsidies. 

  • The new funding mechanism is built upon three pillars – a) basic grant based on the value of the collection; b) extra grant based on the number of visitors, business model, programs for children and research; c) priority subsidy decided by the political agenda. 
  • Most of the extra millions will benefit museums in Central Denmark, Capital Region and South Denmark.
