Museet Arkæologi i Haderslev set udefra

10,000 years
of history

Haderslev Museum was founded in 1887 following the find of two opulent gold vessels from the Early Bronze Age.

They are about 2,500 years old. Today’s museum is a large museum that houses a marvellous collection of archaeological artefacts.

All were found locally in Southern Jutland.

Museum Sønderjylland’s archaeology department is responsible for all archaeological digs in this part of Denmark.

We normally exhibit our most recent finds at the museum.

The Open Air Museum features historical farms and other buildings from Southern Jutland, a rare post mill and ancient burial sites.


Parking by the museum is free and unlimited.

There are also parking spaces for coaches.

Food and drink

Soft drink, selection of chocolate and icecream can be bought in the museum shop.

Visitors can bring their own lunch and take it into our indoor eating area which seats 25 people.
