The new Moesgaard Museum is not only a beautiful piece of architecture but the exhibits contained within are impressive and vast. The current temporary exhibit on the Chinese terracotta army was very interesting. Downstairs there is a permanent exhibit covering 10,000 years of Danish history. The permanent display features lots of video content and interactive educational tools. This exhibit alone... More

We visited the new Moesgaard Museum wich cannot be compared to the old museum. The architecture is both modern and suits the green landscape. Inside it is astonishing spacious and with a surprising shift from very open light rooms to illuminated display rooms. The exhibition is a good mix of archaelogical science and valuable treasures found in Jutland. The vast... More

Very excellent new permanent exhibition, lots of good displays for all ages. Special section where kids of all ages can try archaeology lab-work. Very good use of the building to visualize size and placement of items. With a teen, a five year and a two year old kid, 8 hours wasn't enough to talk about and see, experiment and play... More

I visited here because of the building. Normally I'm not into archaeology museum that much but they do a lot of interactive exhibit and the way they present make it interesting. It's not far from the city and very nice in a sunny day, relaxed in the grass field :) It's next to a forest, nice to go for a... More

I have been to the old Moesgaard museum several times and enjoyed it very much. It has always been the place to take our children and national as well as international guests. But now, with the new museum that just opened in October 2014 the museum has taken a giant leap into a world class museum where modern architecture and... More

The new Moesgaard Museum (MoMu) is highly recommendable. I've seen two of their exhibitions and am will be heading back for more. The Chinese Terracotta Warriors is currently exhibited at MoMu for the second time only outside China. The setup was elegant and intruiging, and just the right amount of information and selection of exhibits. Another guest told me that... More

Modern architecture in a rural setting. Had dramatic and professionally displayed exhibits. Don't miss the bog man. Easy to get to by car.

This is one of the best museums I have ever seen. According to my opinion, presentation and the way information is shared are for a museum as important as the artefacts which are on display. These are all top in the Moesgaard museum. Although we came for the Grauballe Man, the world’s best preserved bog body and still thé highlight... More

Modern building of the museum is so much better that the old one. You can find here a lot of interesting artifacts, interactive exhibitions etc. I am not a museum guy but this one is really worth it. But beware - one whole day is still not enough.
