If ever in Aarhus, Denmark with an interest of the history of ancient northern Europe, Don't miss out on this! They even have a very good cafe (with a herring combo grade A).. The eerie body of the man from the bog and hundreds of swords, spear and other war paraphernalia. All probably sacrificed before the dark ages. Take bus... More

Moesgaard museum reopened autumn 2014 with a new building and state-of-the-art interactive exhibitions and stunning architecture. The museum focuses on Natural History with focus on ancient times - Bronze Age, Iron Age and Viking age. This section is below ground, down the huge stairs. Up the stairs they have a smaller Ethnographic exhibition with histories from the present. All exhibitions... More

The new building housing the Museum of history is a triumph of Danish design at it's best. Oozing out of the hillside it has stunning views out across the nearby forest and the Aarhus bay beyond. An extra twist, as discovered in the few days of snow this winter, the roof is probably Denmarks longest sledge/tobaggon ride! Inside the exhibition... More

If you are interested in history or architecture, then the new museum of history in Aarhus, Moesgaard is a must - in fact well worth a journey to Aarhus in itself! Two must see highlights are the Grauboelle man - a completely preserved body of an iron age man - and the finds from Illerup where the complete equipment of... More

This is a complete triumph!! absolutely astoundingly well put together and accessible. Some issues with the service, which i hope are simply teething problems but i would get these fixed asap - especially int he cafe where the service was appalling (through terrible and illogical design, not the people) - the food however, was great.

A fantastic experience to see the Bronze-, Iron- and Viking area exhibited in the most "live fashion". In a years time the Stone age exhibition will come live as well. Spend at least half a day - or even better a full day, with a lunch break in the splendid Museum Café, where excellent food is served at a very... More

This museum set new standards for what is possible for modern exhibitions. The great architecture built into the landscape combined with the great exhibition of ancient history of Denmark and surrounding countries make really a big impression. The view from the “top” of the building is magnificent (especially when we visited at sunset) over the Aarhus bay and the old... More

I had a very limited time in Arhus, and the fact that the Moesgaard Museum is about a half hour bus ride from the center of Arhus to the museum grounds was enough to make me wonder if it was worth the time. But after going, I am so glad that I decided to make the time to visit it.... More
