Aalborg Historical Museum has a large collection of locally-produced silverware and glass.

It also has a collection of clothing and textiles items from the 1700's to the present.

In the 1950's the Museum conducted a series of archaeological excavations at Iron Age and Viking sites in the the area, including Lindholm Hoje, resulting ultimately in the museum at Lindholm Hoje.

Of particular interest is the Aalborgstue display. 'The best preserved middle class Renaissance interior' in Denmark.
