I was looking for something different to do on a weekend trip to Aarhus and a read about this museum. What a find! One bus away from the city center, through nice Danish countryside. Amazing architecture! I was lucky to visit when they had a special exhibit from China (there through Sept. 2015 - go if you can!). The other... More

I think museums in Denmark are expensive, but they totally worth visiting! Moesgaard museum is so modern, they used so many technologies. I think it can be especially good for childrens' curiosity. I liked vikings' room, where they used different stories to tell how life was back then. After museum it was lovely to walk in the forest!

The Moesgaard Museum is totally renewed and opened in new surroundings in 2014. The architecture of the new buildings is itself enough reason to pay the museum a visit. On top of that the museum holds fantastic exhibitions on prehistoric Denmark. For more information check out: www.moesgaardmuseum.dk

Amazing museum that challenges most of your preconceptions about museums. It'd take more than a day to see everything, so we'll just have to go back. Exhibits and interactive displays are in both Danish and English. The special exhibition was the Chinese Terracotta Army (well 120 objects from it, including some of the full-size warriors). Well worth a visit, and... More

Brilliant excibition both of the Chinese and the First Humans right up to the Vikings. Only trouble was the heat and the lack of frech air.

3 hours were not even close to being enough time to see all of the exhibits. We were luck enough to be there when the Chinese Terracotta warriors exhibits was on display. With 4 floors and over 50,000 artifacts, I would not call it small as did another reviewer. There are many interactive displays to watch and listen too as... More

This is only a small museum but is well laid out and really interesting. It explores many aspects of the second world war as experienced by the Danes of Aarhus. Although all the explanations are in Danish, we were given a booklet with explanations also in English. Unfortunately we ran out of time and could only spend half an hour... More

A comprehensive selection of exhibits and artefacts from the stone age to modern day. The terracotta exhibit in particular was most authentic and very impressive. Good modern nordic cuisine offered at the restaurant, great cake and overall a decent menu.

The museum is very modern and displays the information in an interactive way even for people who are not necessarily interested in the topic of anthropology. There is also an area where kids can learn how archaeologists work and can play with some of the tools and machines. The exterior architecture of the museum is also eye-pleasing and the roof...
