The Moesgaard Museum is a short (~10km/~20min) bike ride away from the city center, or I gather you can take public transport. Arriving on the property, you're immediately rewarded with the stark beauty of this museum rising out of the hills. Make sure you take some time to walk around the property, as the view is stunning. There's an older... More

Their exhibition of prehistoric homonoids is outstanding. Great to bring children and teenagers but also good for adults. Some very good presentations. Then they show early humans in Denmark. Not much focus on Vikings but then again this is not a Viking museum. The two other exhibitions are tiny and the one about afterlife not so great. All in all... More

Before you even enter the museum, you've taken a hundred photos of the remarkable building. Once inside forget notions of musty old rooms with neatly labelled artefacts. This is a modern museum that involves the visitor in the story of the lives of those who have gone before us. Highly recommended, and with Aarhus being the European city of culture... More

I've been here twice. I also recently visited the National Museum in Copenhagen and feel this museum actually tells to the story of Denmark in a more interesting way. Unfortunately on the last visit, the rotating exhibit was not open (was a Roman Colosseum exhibit). Well worth the visit.

Moesgaard was a very interactive museum. We visited with my friend and 3 year old child. She was too young for the exhibits, but the interaction kept her attention throughout the day. We saw the People of the Past exhibit which ranges from the Stone Age to through the Viking age. We did not see the other exhibits and could... More

The local etnigraphic museum has turned into an acknowledged internationally acclaimed museum with big shows. The restaurant offers good lunch fares for members. Go for the food and see the exhibition or vice versa. Worth your while.

Outstanding both in architecture and content. The early immigrant (pre-history) display is lifelike and instructive. Anyone interested in Nordic history and culture will fin this museum a treasure trove.
