Bornholms Museum


Prehistoric finds including weapons, tools and jewellery are on show at Bornholm's museum of cultural history, which has a surprisingly large and varied collection of local exhibits, including some interesting Viking finds. A good maritime section is decked out like the interior of a ship, and there’s a hotchpotch of nature displays, antique toys, Roman coins, pottery and paintings.
