Poul la Cour Museet
The idea behind the "Poul la Cour Museum" is to tell the story of Poul la Cour's life and work, and the importance of his legacy.
Poul la Cour (1846-1908) was a high school teacher and inventor. He also worked hard to improve the conditions of the rural population.
In 1878, he invented the "tone wheel" which made it possible to send up to 100 telegrams at the same time. In 1891 he designed the first electricity-generating windmill in Denmark. He subsequently developed methods for storing energy in the form of hydrogen. He soon became known as "the Danish Edison" and he is the reason why, 100 years later, Denmark has become the largest manufacturer of wind turbines in the world.
The museum will be open by arrangement by calling Povl-Otto Nissen +45 75423933 or Bjarke Thomassen +45 27637036.
