The 'new' Moesgaard Museum is a 'must see' if you are in Aarhus. The Museum has been there for a long time but quite recently moved into a spectacular new building that literally cascades down a hill. The curation here is outstanding - not just...More

Excellent interactive museum for those who love anthropology. Current special exhibit called The Journey is worth the trip. Cinematic story telling of life journey. Reinforces our similarities across the world.

Stunning museum that so many other museums around the world can learn from. They don't just display artefacts - they create an atmosphere with music, lighting and superb interactivity. Fantastic location, inspiring and you can spend as much time outside as you can inside!

The museum is beautifully located in a great modern building being a natural part of the landscape. It presents the history of humans and their migrations. The exhibition focuses on Scandinavian population showing as well its connection to the world

This museum was really worth visiting. Wonderful exhibits and plenty of space. And much bigger than it seems, so here you should have a good space of time. Good food and drink in the cafe at the entrance.

Fantastic museum on the evolution of man. Extremely well organized with lots of interactive exhibits. The architecture of the museum is in itself a work of art!
