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. Excellent use of technology in the galleries, first-rate decisions about the presentation of each era's galleries,...More

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.

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