An interesting museum, small enough to provide a good overview in a few hours, without getting exhausted. All information in English as well. Good shop. Located in the center of the town, just behind the cathedral and near Kulturen.

Has lots of different stuff, from natural fauna to antique crurches, going trough classical rome and greece. If you like to learn and explore i'd reccomend at least one hour there.

The Barbaricum exhibition with the finds from Uppåkra a big Viking Age and older settlement is very interesting. You could find gold, silver, bronze, glass of high-class craftsmanship from 5-8th century . Discovery Channel ran a story on a costume buckle that looks like Mickey Mouse and suddenly it became a world sensation.

Worth seeing if in Lund, next to the University and some of the beautiful buildings in the area. A caution is if you have small children there are exhibits with human bones and skulls so it could disturb younger people. Other than that interesting,

This museum in the skane region is owned by the Lund university and situated close to the famous cathedral. It has a big collection from the earlier anatomy and history faculties of university and different things excavated around skane region such as coins, sculpture, religious figures, prehistoric stone tools. It is a small museum and appears to have a severe... More

I wish I had been more impressed with the Historiska Museet, but I just wasn't. The whole place was a little dark, the displayed slanted a bit religious for my taste, and the price was steep for non-students (given the size and scope of the museum). Maybe I missed something, but I don't believe I did. With that said, it's... More

Although I stayed in Sweden quite a few years ago I knew very little about the country or its history. The museum was very enlightening, I would go again and would recommend it as a stopping point on any visit to Lund.

This is a small museum near the Cathedral if you have time check it out but it's definitely not a must see.

There is a little something for everyone here. . . especially if you are interested in history. Lots of objects and information on finds from archeological digs. The cathedral museum shows the 1000 years of the changes in the cathedral.
