Small, but interesting museum
Apr 2017 • Couples
The museum is situated at the premises of the old Holtegaard mansion and art museum, and is absolutely worth a visit. After entering the central entrance there are two wings with exhibits, both well kept. The oldest part, to the right, has a very educational layout with preserved animals and birds in full size and illustrating their environment. A lovely place for children, where a lot of the specimens exhibited may be touched and felt. Useful signposts give good information, but in Danish only. The most spectacular exhibits are the remains found in the more than 7000 years old burial sites. The newer part contains a lot of things found nearby when the motorway should be expanded. Actually the whole museum contains only artefacts collected in the local area. It gives an excellent overview of the history of this part of Denmark.

Unassuming, interesting and family friendly!
Mar 2017 • Family
My wife and I took our 9 year old and 3 year old for a 'speculative' day out to a place we had driven past but never entered. It is not a big, nor 'fancy' museum. But it is very effective at telling the story and setting the context to a series of finds from the stone age. All the finds were discovered locally and they are set in the context of the wild life and and way of life at the time when this part of Denmark was considerably different than today. All four of us got something different from the visit, and afterwards we took a walk around the wonderful baroque gardens - vowing to return in the summer for a picnic. It is inexpensive, and next time we will take time to have a coffee and a wander through the adjoining art gallery. Lovely buildings and location. At 60kr for 2 adults this was certainly 'value for money'!

A glimpse of everyday life in the neolithic age
Apr 2015 • Friends
A tiny museum north of Copenhagen with interesting and detailed finds from a neolithic settlement that has been habitated on and off over 1,000 years.

One grave is on display as found whereas the three others (out of 17 graves) have been put back into place so to speak. The museum has great number of artefacts from the period as well as copies that may be handled by visitors. My children (5 and 8) and their little friend (10 yo) throught it was great to touch and lift tools, bear skins and other artifacts rather than just looking at things in glas boxes.

The museum is free for children under 18 and the entrance fee of 20 DKK covers visiting Mothsgården, another local museum.

Out of The City and Back in Time
Feb 2015 • Family
The Vedbæk Finds is an archaeologic collection of finding dating back to the very foundation of life i Denmark. In the 70s 17 graves holding 22 individuals from the Maglemose period - around 5000 B.C. - were discovered. The finds give an unique look into the surprisingly sophisticated life during the hunter-gathers age.

Though the small museum could use a refurbishing - it's still well worth the trip to Gl. Holtegaard, which houses the museum. You get a vivid place into the life of these people - especially the graves on exhibition and their accompanying stories speak to adventurous imaginations of all ages. Also, the small museum is very hands on, which my children found very relieving:-)

Across the yard from the museum - Gl Holtegaard often exhibits modern art, so it's the perfect occasion to 'kill to flies in one stroke' if you're that kind of person. The place also has a very nice garden, which will round of the visit nicely, having fed your imagination to the brim.

You only wish small museums like this could find the funds to lift it into the new market, as the content on exhibition is priceless and fascinating.
