Moesgaard museum has been a favorite of mine for more years than I care to remember. But the new building really puts its amazing ethnographic and archeological collections to their right. I especially enjoyed the story behind the great Iron Age battle at Illerup Aadal where warriors from all corners of Europe met in battle

Visited the museum when the Chinese Terracotta warriors were on display. Whats not to like! However the building was part of the experience. Architecture at its best. A large building designed to nestle into the surrounding grounds and scenery. Very green!

I have visited the museum several times since it reopened. Here is what I would suggest for a great visit: 1) Be there when they open! The museum gets very crowded in hollidays, but most visitors arrive around 1-2 pm. (Alternatively: visit wednesday evening, the only evening of the week the museum is open.) 2) Head straight for the special... More

An amazing museum with the largest collection of Iron Age items. The Bog man is incredible and the building and its roof are worth the visit

Great exhibits. Went primarily to see the Chinese Terracotta warriors, but found more really worthwhile exhibitions about the evolution of humankind and ancient history of Denmark. Very thought through use of modern digital technology for all ages and something for all to see.

How lucky we were to get to go to this amazing museum. What really sets this place apart ( aside from the brilliant architecture and setting) is how well the artifacts are contextualized. Rather than see case after case of spear points or buttons, you are shown how they were created and used or worn. The museum uses music, lighting,... More

We went to see the New Moesgaard Museum. We have been to the old one several times and this new museum is great in many ways. The Building is build into the nature - there are several relax rooms when you need to take a rest, the cafe serves fine food and the staff is very friendly. Check there website... More
