It may have been due to the construction work around the city but i found this to be a difficult find. You don't actually know you have found the building until you are standing right in front of it. There are 3 floors, the first...More

Not another dusty regional museum with some boring exposition of local history. This museum has lots of interesting artefacts starting from pre-history, everything is very well organized, supported with modern interactive technologies. It gave a great overview of the significance of Roskilde for the Danish...More

This spectacularly well designed museum enriches the narrative of the city's entire history. Recently designed exhibits are stupendous, proving that contemporary exhibit design can enhance objects from any era.

Maybe we were there at the wrong day but it was really boring. There were only a few rooms open and this one's were small and boring and we had seen them in maybe 15 or 20 minutes.

Interesting rooms - one is set up as an old classroom, some of the children in the photos don't look too happy! Didn't know Royal Copenhagen was formerly Aluminia. Would have been excellent score but part of museum was closed in August 2017 for renovation.

This is a small museum run by local volunteers. It is cute and interesting if you are interested in history. It has pictures and tools, and cards explaining what, who and how. All the explanations are in Danish, but the name of the different stations...More

Not the most exciting Museum, but certainly worth the entry fee and a very pleasant place to spend a couple of hours browsing.
