West Jutland Art Pavilion
West Jutland's Art Pavilion is located in Videbæk's amusement park with a view of a lake. The pavilion was designed by Henning Larsen Architects and was opened on 1 June 2012. It is located by the former Sportsvej, which on 1 March 2015 was renamed Henning Larsens Vej to honor the famous architect, who was born in Opsund 4 km west of Videbæk .

In 2017, the art pavilion was expanded with another white horizontal, square building that houses a museum for Arne Haugen Sørensen, who himself has donated a large valuable collection of works to the museum. The two buildings are built together at an oblique angle, leaving a V-shaped space. The walls of the buildings consist of sloping pieces that can be seen as a play with Videbæk's landmark, the V.
