ROMU derives from Roskilde Museum which was established in 1929. Today ROMU consists of 10 museums across three municipalities: Roskilde, Lejre and Frederikssund. ROMU strives to be a prominent actor in Danish cultural life and ROMU has an ambition to actualise knowledge of cultural heritage and make this knowledge relevant.
ROMU is one out of 10 museums on a national level that has been appointed by Slots- og Kulturstyrelsen to handle supervision of multiple Danish protected sites and monuments. Furthermore, the museum handles the supervision of the central and western part of Zealand.
