Nice visit

It is interesting/fascinating how they built in parts of old stone valves and parts of old buildings in to the museum. Worth a visit!

There was much to see not just from Lund's history. Had been looking for several hours if I had the energy. And someone complained about the price ?! 50 SEK admission and free for students, definitely worth a visit! However, most of it is in Swedish.

Nice displays, however lack of signs in English and even in Swedish. There are some impressive local Stone Age artifacts but the lack of signs even in Swedish make it a bit hard to relate to. It is a nice small museum though, you can do it in an hour, cozy experience and free for students!

The visit of Historical Museum was indeed a great memory during my visit to Lund. Originally, the Museum Building was the Bishop's residence which was built in 1840-1845, is now turned in a Historical Museum. Great place for History lovers.

This museum seems to be focused on local tourists, as most displays are in Swedish. But it has a wide collection of artefacts from different eras and topics including stone age, bronze age, religious and natural history.

Definite mixed feelings here. Some of the galleries had VERY interesting topics while a couple of them had displays that seemed to be incredibly redundant (will purely depend on whether the topic is of interest to you, I guess!). One very frustrating thing here was that almost everything was in Swedish. Before you start ripping on me for being so... More

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.
