The Helsingør Municipal Museum (Bymuseet) is housed in the former poorhouse (more than 500 years old) near St. Mary's Church. 

The exhibits include a range of historical documents, a model of the town dating from 1801, and a collection of dolls.

 At one time the building was a hospital attached to the nearby Carmelite Monastery. It later became a manor house of some splendor. A museum was established here in 1973.
