The entrance is an elevator at street level that takes you down to the site. You pay for the elevator to take you down. There are two corridors with excavations of old buildings on the site. Interesting displays and English captions. Allow about an hour.

A very interesting museum that is underground. It shows the Franciscan monks history in Denmark. The chapels were built and the bodies were buried there.it is fascinating how the levels were built upon each other.
