Erudite collection

The museum collection was very strong and much more than archaeological. There was a reasonable amount of English, but the Swedish was a fascinating challenge!

I visited some museums in the nördlich countries and I am now convinced that they understood how to make a museum an interesting place. It is very interactive and you don't need to read much to understand what you are looking at. The museum also has activities for younger children, to make them discover some point of our history.

The museum is small, but very nice. Nicely organised with a lovely collection of historical artefacts.

Unfortunately, the viking artefacts are sent abroad at the time being. Therefore only three dots. But the remaining parts of the museum are also worth visiting. The coin collection was interesting - at least to Scandinavians who know the kings mentioned. And it was cheap- only 50 kr. Will be back, when the viking stuff is back in place.

With all due respect to the many five star reviews given to this University Museum, it really doesn't have all that much to offer tourists. Almost all the exhibits are listed in Swedish only, and, really, how many Neolithic axe heads can one see? The entire museum, in my opinion, needs a rethink and some upgrading. If it's raining the...

The museum is small, but it has an excellent early history section with many stone tools. The staff were helpful, too.

I really enjoyed my visit to this small but interesting museum. The Medieval section i thought was fascinating and if this was in the UK i am sure the artifacts would either be behind glass panels or locked doors.

It is interesting/fascinating how they built in parts of old stone valves and parts of old buildings in to the museum. Worth a visit!

There was much to see not just from Lund's history. Had been looking for several hours if I had the energy. And someone complained about the price ?! 50 SEK admission and free for students, definitely worth a visit! However, most of it is in Swedish.

Nice displays, however lack of signs in English and even in Swedish. There are some impressive local Stone Age artifacts but the lack of signs even in Swedish make it a bit hard to relate to. It is a nice small museum though, you can do it in an hour, cozy experience and free for students!
