As other reviewers have noted, Moesgaard is extraordinary and deserves a day of your time (and maybe more, if you'd like to explore outside as well as inside). We came relatively early and made the very popular Gladiators temporary exhibit are first stop, before some of the school excursions arrived. Brilliantly done, with CGI re-enactments and a focus on the... More

The museum is located some way from the city of Aarhus. The building is ingeniously integrated into the landscape, offering a stunning view from the roof. The permanent exhibition sets new standards for presenting history and its artifacts. The temporary exhibitions are amazing. My children (aged 10-12) have insisted on visiting as often as possible since the museum opened. The... More

The museum is vast, particularly the ground floor so make sure you have time to get around it all. it is a little pricey at 130 Kroner but excellent exhibits and a full day's entertainment

This should be your first priority in Aarhus or if you are nearby. Some people read museum and think dusty and boring, but that would be like comparing black and white grainy film with modern cinema. This museum is for everyone, even those who don't normally like museums.

This was one of the best museum experiences I have ever had (and I have had my share) and a must do if you are the least bit interested in history. Modern museum that uses technology in a very good way to enhance the visitors experience. The gladiators exhibition (on in summer 2016) was one of the highlights of our... More

Wow! This brand new museum outside Aarhus , with a focus on bronze age to Viking periods of Danish history is a great place to visit for young and old. Architecture of the building itself is amazing, and the way the exhibitions have been put together is fantastic. The collections on exhibit are vast, and very well displayed. Museums used... More

Really interesting museum about early history of Denmark and anthropology. They also have temporary exhibitions. Just the building deserves the visit. The restaurant is very advisable too. The fee is not cheap but children and teenagers under 18 don't pay. The museum is really interactive but they don't have many activities for young kids, under 8 years old. The parking... More

This was one of the best attractions we visited in Denmark and one of the best museums I have ever been to. It is pricey but worth the money, we only had 3 hours for our visit, we could have spent 5-6 hours there. There was so much to see, the interactive displays for children were great. The current Roman... More

I live fairly close to the museum, but haven't been there that much. My wife bought a season pass, that also includes entrance for one adult ekstra. So now we have visited a couple of times, and I must say: it is magnificent. The whole building is new, build directly into the hills around søsterhøj, surrounded by forresten it is... More

A little expensive at first sight at DKK 130 for an adult but it was worth every Krona. The current exhibitions include a special exhibition on Roman Gladiators. Set in a modern sloping roof building (which you can walk up, yes on the roof) and the exhibit galleries on different levels this has to be one of the best set... More
