“Something Århus is proud of”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The art experience is varied from the 'Golden Age' of Danish artists to the most modern of the same. You must experience the rooftop kalediscope of colour with breathtaking views over the city.

“Great little museum packed with art!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

A good sized museum that is packed with art. It is well spaced and set to be able to enjoy each floor and theme with time to digest in between.

We loved Olafur Eliasson's Rainbow and recomend it as it is so beautiful.

“Aros Aarhus Museum of Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Excellent! Impressive collection and splendid facilities. The building itself is a piece of art and do not miss the "Rainbow" on top of it all.

“Top class art in a top class art house!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

I love the idea of the museum as a reference to Dante´s "Divine comedy". Start on the rooftop, in "Heaven", in "The Rainbow Panorama" by Olafur Eliasson- a fantastic way to take a colourful look at Aarhus from above, go down through the very different exhibitions (sorted by age) and end up in "The Underworld" in the basements: "The Nine Spaces" with works from different artists.
The museum has always special exhibitions as well.
A very good restaurant is on the top floor, a café by the entrance as well as a museums store.
The best thing about this art museum is that it is not overfilled by art - you have the chance to breathe in between the impressions in the exhibition rooms. A very goog idea! So come and visit one of the nicest museums!
