Great architecture; good interactive experience

New museum was a great surprise on our recent visit to Aarhus. Far better than the old museum, and we were in luck; big exhibition on the terracotta warriors from China.

The museum is built into a hill with sea view from the rooftop with grass. The architecture of the building in self is worth a visit. You can spend hours inside the museum learning about danish history and cultures from around the world. The cafe area is cosy and has a nice atmosphere.

We mainly went here to see the exhibition about the Xian terracotta warriors - which will end some time in September 2015. It draws a big crowd, so be there early, or don't - as if everyone listens to the advise of being there early, then it will eventually become the most crowded time :-) The building itself is actually...

Take your time and spend one day at this museum. Find out which historical periods are your favourites, or pick the special exhibition. You'll get lost if you want to see 'everything'! Some areas are very dark, and you may feel claustrophobic.

When it comes to learning about life in the Bronze and Iron Ages, Denmark has some of the best museum exhibits on earth. The National Museum in Copenhagen and the Jelling Museum near Vejle have wonderful displays, and this brand new museum outside of Aarhus is in the same stratospheric league. Nobody does it better than the Danes. Moesgaard has... More

Located in a semi rural area in the outskirts of Aarhus, accesed by narrow roads, this brand new Museum provides invaluable collections of Danish history and more. It is a large space, properly and purposely designed which allows visitors plenty of room for moving through different areas, which exhibit permanent collection and also temporary ones. It is very worth observing... More

Take your time and stroll through this fantastic museum - both inside and on the outside. It's an amazing building with great views from the roof.

Unfortunately I only had 3 and a half hours to spend in this formidable museum. I was specifically interrested in Danish "Oldtid": bronze age, iron age and viking age. The exhibition is very comprehensive and extremely interesting for all ages. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in Nordic history. You also must allow yourself the time it tales to...

Excellent museum on pre-historic and viking times. Very well displayed, a lot of explanatoin for both young and old. In fact one of the best museums I have been to because you can choose to go for all the details or hover the exposition if you would like. One tiny bit that could be better, the 'other side' of the... More

If you're debating... the answer is go. I don't want to oversell it. Part of my enjoyment is that I wasn't expecting much. It was a halfway point for a rest on a day of driving for five hours. But oh what a pleasant surprise. All I will say is that the building (in true Danish fashion) is as much... More
