Kalundborg Museum is a nationally recognized museum exhibiting the cultural history of the Kalundborg area.
The museum was founded in 1910. It is housed in Lindegaarden – a six-winged timbered farmhouse in Hoejby, Kalundborg's medieval district. The museum is adjacent to Kalundborg's famous landmark: the five-towered Our Lady's Church. Lindegaarden is built on the ruins of Valdemar Atterdag's medieval city wall and the oldest parts of the farmhouse were built in the late 16th century.
The museum's significant collections illustrate the historical development of the Kalundborg region from antiquity to the present day. Particularly famous are the museum's collection of costumes from the period 1750 - 1900 and the excavation of a large and rich Viking settlement at Tissoe.
