Roskilde Museum

The town museum of Roskilde tells the story of one of the most important towns of Denmark and of the area around Roskilde and Lejre from prehistoric times to the present day.

The museum received a Nordic award for the exhibits of the rich collections which were made in collaboration with the famous Danish artists Maja Lisa Engelhardt and Peter Brandes.

Roskilde Museum is temporarily closed and under reconstruction until summer of 2017 to build a whole new exhibition and museums experience on the basis of Roskilde city's cultural history through the ages.

While the permanent exhibitions are closed, there are still plenty of opportunities to get close to the history of Roskilde.

Roskilde Museum Shop and Café is open during the reconstruction period and ROMU holds many exciting events and events both at Roskilde Museum and ROMU's other visitor attractions in Roskilde - The Skt. Laurentius church ruins and tower, Lützhøfts Købmandsgård/ the craft museum, the museum of the Roskilde Cathedral and Ragnarock- museum of pop, rock and youth culture.

Furthermore, the museum is in charge of Lejre Museum and Tadre Mill
