Alongside all this, the museum is home to a functioning pewter workshop and exhibits dedicated to the discovery of electromagnetism and the "Telegraphone," the forefather of modern tape recording. There's a fine fountain by Einar Utzon-Frank (1926) erected in memory of King Eric of Pomerania who gave Helsingor its original charter.
The aviation section, with more than 30 flying machines, including one that's claimed to be the first ever to take flight in Europe (sadly unrecorded), is particularly interesting. Markets are held at Axeltorv on Wednesdays and Sundays, and from May to October, there's also an antique market each Friday.
Other points of interest include Dutch alabaster altarpieces, the beautifully carved pulpit, and a number of frescoes. Stretching over some 8,000 meters, the museum is housed in a former iron foundry dating from the 1960s.

The area is also the site of the Culture Yard; a theater, concert venue, library, and restaurant housed in a cutting-edge glass and steel structure created from old wharf buildings.
Less than a half-hour drive (25 kilometers) from Helsingor, near Hillerod, is stunning 17th century Frederiksborg Castle, an absolute must-see if visiting this area.
Yet, this unassuming town boasts a medieval Shakespearean past, for this is Elsinore, home to Hamlet's castle, the mighty Kronborg.
The medieval quarter is particularly pleasant to explore on foot and has some fascinating buildings, such as the beautifully preserved Carmelite Monastery (Karmeliterklostret) attached to St. Dotted about the town, you'll find quaint boutiques, atmospheric cafés, and charming restaurants. In the northeast of town, on a peninsula in the Øresund, the towering edifice is plainly visible from afar.
The Castle Chapel lies in the South Wing with a splendid Renaissance interior and woodcarvings from Germany.
