Amazing rune stones from ancient times. Well worth a visit and if you book a tour you get the full story that finishes up inside the church revealing where the bones of the ancient king lies :)
Turned into a fantastic place and experience.
Denmark's christening certificate... also a connection to Bluetooth. Good visitors centres, but the settings of the stones is perhaps a little under whelming.
New museum with background info is very good! And cheap, that is: free.
Absolute amazing experience in the museum. It was awesome.
