This place is a must see, I have been to many Museums over the years but this place was something else. The meet the Family exhibition is incredible I had shivers down my spine as I descended the evolution stairway and met the ancestors. We then went onto explore the other exhibitions which were equally impressive. It cost around £14... More

I've been to the old Moesgaard Museum for years. So I found out that they were going to build a new modern museum next door to the old one, I couldn't wait to visit it. And it was worth the wait. It's an impressive new museum, inside and out. It's a great day out for all the family, couples, friends... More

This is a really nice museum, worth the trip through the woods. My dad, my boyfriend, and I have visited here many times! Great exhibition of Danish history on the basement floor! Also really great special exhibitions once in a while! The terracotta army exhibition was really well done!

Impressive variation in exhibits and methods of showing the artefacts. Aimed at pleasing both children and adults. Exhibits span stoneage to Vikings and is worth a detour.

Firstly, just looking at it from the outside, this museum is amazing! Coming in it offers great exhibits from viking era, evolution and more. Of course the exhibits are changing. But it is definitely worth a visit, no matter what is on display.

It's a really exciting museum where you get used all the senses. Very good for kids too, as you can and need to touch many objects. When we were there, there was an interesting special exhibition about Gladiators and the year before there were Chinese terracotta warriors on loan from China

Must visit in Aarhus. The "new" and amazing building in the forest just outside aarhus is just amazing. You can go by car, rent bicycle and go via forrest or take bus direct to Moesgaard Museum. It is super established and all ages can enjoy. The part with Gravballe Mann is super nice and puts things in perspective. You can... More

I was at my second visit to Moesgaard the other day, and it's still amazing. The depth of the history is clearly shown, and you actually feel as a part of the early hunter gatheres, the bronze age farmers, the Iron age warriors and the viking explores. The combination of modern technology and amazing archelogical finds works extremly well.
