Owner description: Welcome to ARoS Aarhus Art Museum - one of Europe's largest art museums situated in the heart of Aarhus, and the only one with a rainbow on top, Your rainbow panorama. ARoS is a house of art where our guests can be pleased, enlightened and challenged. The architecture is of international class. The same is the art. And both offer experiences of high carat: from light to thrill, from attitude to entertainment, from joy to challenge.

Two "must see" in Aarhus. 9 floors of art - some great, others we just passed. A beer in the restaurant, and then a little more art. Very relaxed.

Exciting modern architecture. Interesting exhibitions - specially the temporary "Golden Age" - Danish paintings and drawings from 1800- 1850 put into a political and social context. A fantastic wiew over Aarhus.

The inside architecture of the building is a piece of art.
The exhibition of the critics choice - combines, in an innovative way, art from different periods in a very effective way. beautiful exhibits modern & 'traditional'. Visit the rainbow top floor the view is amazing.
Have lunch in the restaurant of the museum. The food is excellent & reasonably priced.

Smacked in the touristy part of Aarhus and within walking distance of the shopping street. Aros Aarhus, Kusnstmuseum, is a must if you are visiting Aarhus. It's an art museum. I enjoyed the circular skywalk called Your rainbow panorama by Olafur Elisson, which is at the roof of the building , you can around in a 150 meter long circular panoramic pathway that gives you a 360 degree view of Aarhus , through different color light.The other exhibit that caught my eye is THE boy by hyper realist scupltor , Ron Mueck. The awesomeness and sheer dimension 5 meters high and realism of this sculpture, just bluffed me. Worth the visit, just to see this sculpture!! The other works that I liked , was Distance by Jeppe Hein.

ARoS is among the very best Art Museums in Northern Europe and is certainly among the best in Denmark (if not THE best) - especially if Modern Art is what you are looking for.

The museum houses the greatest works of the COBRA -group, Michael Kvium and many more! A particular forte, is the museum's non-permanent exhibitions which never fail to impress.

Another reason to visit ARoS, is the Rainbow Panorama on the buildings rooftop, from where you can see beautiful views of the city of Aarhus.
