Hillerød Town Museum - Museum Nordsjælland

Hillerød Town Museum is an atmospheric and cosy museum which tells the story of Hillerød throughout 500 years: from medieval village to royal borough and until today.

Participate in traditional children's games both outdoors and indoors. During the summer holidays, you can join the Historical Olympics at Hillerød City Museum, where you can try stilt walking, riding a hobby horse, knocking down cans, and hula-hooping in the scenic surroundings of Frederiksborg Castle Garden.

Tidens Gade

Indoors, Tidens Gade offers a journey 100 years back in time, where children can experience life as it was back then. In the grocer's shop, they can handle goods, turn the handle of an old cash register, weigh coffee, and explore all the products from grandpa's time. At Have-Grethe's nursery, they can swing copper pots on the cast iron stove, use a washboard, and take a ride with the rag doll. Visit the old-fashioned school with chalk, slates, and school benches, and perhaps grandma can tell about her school days.

Creativity can be unleashed with paint, chalk, and building sets. Children can paint their own postcards in the old painting workshop or build machines with Tekno, just like at the large Nordsten Machine Factory.


Explore a small exhibition that shows Hillerød's development over time - from medieval village to market town around Frederiksborg Castle and up to the present day. At the Graphic Museum, you can see old machines from the time when books and newspapers were printed with hand and machine typesetting.

A walk in Frederiksborg Castle Garden allows you to experience Hillerød's history through buildings, roads, homes, and shops along the Castle Lake and into the town.

Food & Shop

Take a break in the café, which offers both indoor and outdoor seating. Here you can enjoy coffee, tea, cocoa, juice, soda, cookies, old-fashioned candies, and Hansen's Ice Cream. The museum shop sells old-fashioned toys, sweets, books about Hillerød's history, postcards, posters, and cut-out sheets.
