Wow! Three hours and I only took in about 20% of the exhibits. It is huge, but absorbing. The Grauballe “Bogman” story and artifacts alone are worth the entry fee. The cafe fare was superb quality and at a value unusual for us Brits in...More

Definitely a very interesting museum with a lot to see. Many exhibitions with a lot of technology, used in different ways. The museum is quite far away from the centre of Aarhus.

Simply brilliant. Well worth the trip. I could have done with another 3 hours. There is a very handy bus service to the centre of Aarhus if you need it too.

We went as a small group and had a great time. TripAdvisor suggests 3 or more hours and we spent just over 3 hours. I believe I could have spent 5 hours as I would have enjoyed going back through the Mongolia room. I thoroughly...More
