ROMU derives from Roskilde Museum which was established in 1929. Today ROMU consists 10 museums across three municipalities: Roskilde, Lejre and Frederikssund. ROMU wishes to be a prominent actor in the 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 the Danish protected sites and monuments. Furthermore, the museum handles the supervision of the central and western part of Zealand.
