Helsingør Bymuseum

The nearby monastery’s friars constructed the structure that today serves as the municipal museum and first utilized it as a hospital for sailors who arrived at the nearby harbor. Along with other artifacts from the city’s history, some of the tools the friars previously used at the hospital are on display. Additionally, visitors to the museum may discover the meaning of the name of the area: Øresund relates to the tax that Erik of Pomerania requested (a “øre” is a Danish penny, and “sund” is “channel” or “sound”).
