Is that both our visits last year and this were single-handedly destroyed by our kids, to be specific, our oldest son. I thought by learning about human history will help parenting and educate the boy but no. We regret to admit the bad luck we suffered because we are way too fascinated by this museum, probably the best in Scandinavia.... More

From a concentual point of view, this museum is close to perfection, both for adults and children, moreover in a building that is astonishing by itself. The bronze and iorn age metalware collection must be one of the most interesting ones worldwide. The museum restaurant has great food at very democratic prices. Only the museum shop could perhaps be further... More

Visited this icon architecture and was also stunned by the Bronze Age and Iron Age exhibition. The Viking exhibit was a little disappointing, but lunch at the cafe and a walk on the sloping roof made up for it!!

The whole family really loved the exhibitions about vikings, gladiators and death. They were all very interactive and nicely presented. We enjoyed a great lunch outside. Food was very nice and the staff friendly. The kids (4 and 8) loved running up and down the roof.

Excellent display of their artifacts, the ambiance of the rooms was superb. I have been too many museums, this one blew my mind away. They have locker rooms in case you coffee with stuff, and the bus #18 departs right by the train station. I spent 4 hours there and just felt it was ok. The prehistoric rooms where the... More

Moesgaard Museum - or MOMU for short - is an absolutely amazing museum. As soon as you get a glimpse of the building, which is tightly integrated in the natural environment of the beautiful nature in the southern outskirts of Aarhus, you might get a hunch that this is something special. And it is. Opening for the public in 2014,... More

From the outside the museum is really spectacular, absolutely amazing design and settings. Inside it is just as good, really interesting exhibitions and really well laid out, you spend 2 full days easily here. So much to see.
