Oh my! This was such a pleasant surprise. Actually, it was shockingly wonderful to find a museum that covered a wide range of industrial and technological artifacts all within several buildings in easy walking distant from one another. And there is a gift shop, a gallery, and a wonderful restaurant with tasty food that is so reasonably priced. If you... More

There's lots to see here, and even though "industry" isn't something that's high on your list of interests, you'll find this place fascinating. A great trip through time.

I love love love this museum. A wide variety of objects and areas that really let you experience "traveling in time". If you are interested in getting to see what the industrial revolution did for the people of Denmark, and how it so greatly shaped all of our lives, this is a place not to miss out on! One of...

Danmarks Industrimuseum is a must-see in East-Jutland. The museum is suitable for all age categories. The museum is huge, we've walked around for 3 hours. Every department fascinates till the end of your visit. The museum takes you back in time to the industrial revolution. Old machine engines that will be started by every hour. Futhermore, you can see a... More

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. The permanent exhibit houses all sorts of engines, and there are volunteers (retired machinists, teachers, etc.) who eagerly share their knowledge and even would start some of the engines for you. I am admittedly a mechanical moron, but the guides' enthusiasm... More

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

Good parking facilities just next to the museum. It is several buildings and easy to find the things you are interested in. Entry fee is only 60 kr. and reception give you a map and explain where the different areas are and when there are free guided tours. We did the guided tour and the historian Ole Pukgaard - hope...

This proved indeed a very interesting museum! A variety of things highlighting the industrial evolution since late 1800s exhibited in various buildings centred around the old power station of Horsens. Amongst the exhibition highlights are a big selection of engines, typography, carpentry shop, smithy, old shop windows. You find old worker apartments laid out at different ages. There is a... 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
