The permanent exhibitions on stone age and on prehistoric Aarhus is well worth a days visit. After the museum reward yourself with a walk in the forest surrounding the museum.

I visited with my family which is from ages 4 up to 61 and there was something for everyone. You definitely need a full day or more to really see it all. There are lots of interaction stations which can be enjoyed by most ages. Our 4 year old nephew did enjoy the museum but found some parts a little... More

Beautiful views from the top level indoors and from the roof of the building. Cafe served a good quality coffee and the museum was designed and curated very well. It was very interactive and interesting. A fascinating history of death, and human origins. Also had some fun aspects for children such as a dancing skeleton and a lab.

This Museum has resently been built, and it is absolutely wonderful to see it. They are extremely good at making old stories relevant, and show interesting things from the stone and bronze age, apart from their changing expositions. I would recommend this for everyone if they pass through Aarhus. The museum focus on the early history of the human species.

Seldom am I impressed with a museums design and interactive experience. But Moesgaard delivers that and more!! From the very start, you pick a token object from 10, carry it into the exhibit and place it on certain areas to initiate an interactive experience. As if that's not enough, the physical design of the space and the arrangement of the... More
