This is the best museum for those who wants to know about what happened in the late era, wars, and all about cultures. They have even every details of equipments, stories, and swords. There are lots of ways to experience the time yourself through computers, projectors, chips, games, and any kind of media you can imagine. They even have real... More

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

The brand new Moesgaard Museum is much bigger and more modern than the old one. Downstairs are the archaeological exibitions, divided into bronze age, iron age and vikings. The Grauballe bog man is one of the highlights, as is the find from Illerup Ådal. The central staircase shows the evolution of man in a series of life size statues. Upstairs... More

This totally new and very modern museum sets new standard for displaying relics. Filled with Stoneage, Bronze age and Viking age artifacts it is a travel in time. There are no Square rooms and you feel like being guided through a ancient village. Very delicate and very educational.

This museum's design is weirdly literal - its green roof makes it look like a giant trapdoor in the middle of a grass field that slowly opening. It makes perfect sense for an archaeological museum. Once inside the exhibits do not disappoint - in the basement they have permanent exhibits covering the bronze age, iron age, and viking age with... More

This was about a 30min bus ride out of downtown which will cost you 20DKK (approx $4 CAD). This museum is not only architecturally interesting, but also provides a lot of information into Denmark's history and has a great Viking exhibit! It also has great nature walks around it. Great for English-only speakers as well.

The new Momu is a spectacular place to visit and bus 18 goes all the way out there. The new buildings are a joy to "climb" and inside is also very much worth a visit.
