Fantastic space, brilliantly conceived and cleverly incorporates interactive technologies. Superb exhibition of human evolution - the realisation of fossil skulls and their presentation is top class. The presentation of human history in mannequins that incorporate the high end of forensic anthropology is striking. Restaurant service excellent and good value.

The new Moesgaard Museum is a sharp break from the old museum, and from other traditional museums, since it is a far cry from being dusty and boring. A huge effort is put into making the museum a innovative place centered around experiencing and sensing the history, not only looking at it. For instance, the floor around the box of... More

I have been to the Moesgaard Museum many times since 1997, including the new (remodeled) museum. It it truly an exceptional venue, part of Aarhus University, and with one of the best "bog men" in the world - the Graubelle Man. Worth a handful of hours.

The museum which just opened some months ago in new buildings and surroundings is really worth seeing. Interesting exhibitions - modern building - very interesting multi-purpose roof, beautiful location. Go and see for yourself. :)

Amazing museum with latest technology allows the visitor to experience with almost all senses the atmosphere of historical events, people and places. Exciting journey through time and cultures. Prehistoric era, vikings time and modern world culture is covered. Very easy to navigate through the exhibitions. It takes good 3 hours to go around. There is cafe on site, locker rooms,... More

The collections are great and you can spend a nice few hours here. The building in itself is a sight as well. The surrounding area is great for a walk after the museum visit.

When in Aarhus, I can only recommend to reserve at least half a day to go to Moesgaard and visit the new and very popular museum. I was there with my mother by car, but a bus also runs straight to the door. The museum building has an amazing architecture build into the landscape like a small hill, which is... More

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
