This museum has permanent exhibits covering the major historical time periods of the area (Stone Age, Bronze Age, Viking Age, etc.), and they're designed in a fun and interactive way. Great for both parents and kids. Everyone will learn, and no one will be bored....More

The museum really surprised me. I enjoyed both the building itself (one other good example of Danish design) and the exhibition on the inside. The latter is organized in Ancient Scandinavian history and Vikings Age and has a further exhibition about Death in different cultures...More

Great museum of the Danish and Viking old culture, placed in a coherent and very well displayed historic context, plus the bonus of the temporary exhibitions which are always interesting if not spectacular. Moesgard is more than a history lesson, it is a visual, audio...More

Moesgaard is not your traditional museum. It was built only two or three years ago, and it really created an archaeological experience. They make great use of light, sound, and atmosphere to teach you about history in a super interesting way.

The museum is a little outside the main city of Aarhus, but it is easily reachable by car or bike, and is serviced by the number 18 bus. I was studying at the Aarhus University Moesgaard campus which is next to the museum last summer,...More

If not for the exhibits, then just visit to see the architecture and the surroundings. I would recommend everyone visiting to also take a stroll in the forest. There is a beautiful path along the creek (giber å) to the beach. The museum it self...More
