We really enjoyed viewing the apartments, set up with period furnishings and clothing. We also especially enjoyed the shops with plenty of historical examples of equipment, clothing, and such. The school roomwas also

It is in the center of the city, and the exhibits are spread out across 5 or more buildings.

We went to the industrial museum last summer. I was not expecting much, but I found myself entralled with the quantity and diversity of things that were on display. And the coin operated exhibits were cool to say the least. Some of the workshops went into motion, with levers and belts moving this way and that way. I think children... More

Went with a friend just to have a nice time and to learn something about the Danish culture within industry and work. Have seen the museum several times and they are always changing some of the exhibitions and extending others to keep it interesting. Always worth the visit

Great experience! Lifestyles, culture, machinery, clothes etc etc over years and centuries. My favourite is the 3 (or was it 4?) storey house with every room representing a period in Danish life. Don't miss the museum shop as it has great stuff!
