Moesgaard is a very interesting museum in a massive new building with great architecture both in and outside. The old part of the museum is still there too, but not used for exhibitions anymore. On top of the museum you can walk al the way up to the top and have a beautiful view. Inside is incredibly big and you... More

Covers the Stone Age to present day history of the Denmark region. Viking history is only a small part of the experience. English friend displays and great staff. Beautiful grounds offering a view of the area not seen otherwise.

This new one is about the stories. the kids still liked it but they did not come out drawing runes. I enjoyed the restaurant as a... More

The Moesgaard Museum exemplifies the global trend over the last two decades that architects, designers, storytellers and scenographers are taking over museums. The artefacts are still allowed a place, but are mainly used as props in the scenography. Hopefully this trend will become obsolete within a decade or two.

The new building is stunningly beautiful and well laid out. Exhibition was beyond what you see at Larger museums and much more interesting than most exhibits in Northern Europe and US. It is specialized in pre- historic to roughly year 1500 with emphasis on life and cultures at local as well distant places

At "Momu" you are practically eye to eye with our forefathers. An it is a beautifull experience. So is the architecture - rather outstanding. Almost hidden, tucked into the hill. Try the food in the cafe.

The museum is a must for travellers since the museum has a huge permanent exhibiton about the local history through ages, but mostly stone age and bronz age. It's here you learn about the magnificient history of the vikings and their great exploration of Europe. There are always special spectacular exhibitions with global focus.

The museum has the most amazing well displayed objects. Plenty of interactivity and so much to see you have to allocated a whole day. This is a beautiful venue both inside and out. The ironage find of Grauballemanden was particularly facinating.
