RAGNAROCK - Museum for pop, rock and youth culture
A “ROCKING” MUSEUM EXPERIENCE!
See, hear and feel your way through the history of rhythmic music from 1950s rock'n'roll, through1980s pop culture to today's wild rhythms - and get an idea of tomorrow's music scene.
But RAGNAROCK is more than a roller coaster ride in the colorful history of music. First and foremost you get the story of roaring youth generations that through different times creates its own culture, communicating globally through music and have huge impact on society.
RAGNAROCK is also an exciting Exploratorium. Participate in the world's largest choir, dance our way through history and find your favorite song.
The museum is located in Roskildes 'Rock City' - the district Musicon, just a stone's throw from the famous Roskilde Festival's permanent place ... where else? Stararchitects from Dutch MVRDV and Danish COBE are the creative minds behind RAGNAROCKS iconic golden building. The daring architecture both externally and internally emphasizes the history and atmosphere that the museum conveys
