The Aalborg Historical Museum

At Aalborg Historical Museum, plenty of exciting experiences await you and your family. Bring your children along as there is plenty of fun and activities for them and a chance to explore.

At Aalborg Historical Museum you can experience Aalborg’s fascinating story, starting when it was founded 1200 years ago.

Aalborg Historical Museum centers on the story of the city of Aalborg and its surroundings during the last 1000 years. The earliest findings come from a thorough excavation conducted by the museum in 2007-2008, where archeologists carefully scrutinized 4 meters of soil. Another particular attraction is Aalborgstuen (the Aalborg livingroom) from 1602 - the best preserved piece of Bourgeois Renaissance interior in the country.
The exhibition even includes the 20th century, a time when Aalborg was a blossoming industrial town. Aalborg was then home to many factories, producing a broad array of items, including shoes, ice cream, brooms and TVs – all of which can be experienced at the museum.

Many Activities
All year round, Aalborg Historical Museum arranges many different activities, e.g. guided tours, a book fair, Mill days, beer tasting, activities for children and much more.

During the winter holiday (week 8) and the autumn holiday (week 42), the museum is open every day.
Furthermore, the museum is closed between December 24 and 31.
