Møntergården is the cultural history museum in Odense, Denmark. It is located at Overgade 48 in a courtyard of half-timbered houses in the Renaissance style.[1] The museum has exhibits on Funen's ancient history, as well as Odense in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Dating to 1646, the two storey building's exterior features carved rosettes. From 2010 to 2013, a major expansion occurred.

Among the displays is the Koelbjerg Man (formerly Koelbjerg Woman), who lived around 8000 BC and are the oldest human remains known from Denmark.[2]
