Museum of History, from the Stone Age through Antiquity, the Middle Ages and early modern period

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

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
