Moesgaard Museum - Review

The museum is arresting enough at first sight – it looks like it’s growing straight out of the ground, much like Aladdin’s Cave… and like that cave, it contains terrific treasures. Dedicated to archaeology and ethnography – it’s got ties to the Institute of Prehistoric Archaeology, Medieval and Renaissance Archaeology, Ethnography and Anthropology at Aarhus University. 50000 artefacts from all over the world are displayed here, though the majority of the exhibit is Danish. Highlight include the Grauballe Man, the world’s best preserved bog bodyand the large ritual weapon caches from Illerup Ådal, runestones including the Mark Stone, the Snapstun Stone depicting Loki etc. The exhibits are highly interactive and uniquely presented – you get to live the life of a historical character, almost literally bringing the past back to life.

In the area surrounding the main museum – check out the open air reconstructions of several ancient structures – including Viking ones such as a stave church and a pit-house, an Iron Age farmhouse, a stone age cult house, and a 100 year old Thai house. The grounds are quite expansive and a walk can be quite pleasant. It overlooks little woods and the sea and is usually breezy.

Moesgaard Museum, Aarhus Reviews

  • Absolutely the greatest museum I have been to. Super interactive and super interesting. Enjoyed every bit of the bottom floor. They’ve done an amazing job setting up this museum and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. The unique architecture of the museum and the views from the top is another huge plus!

  • The best museum I've ever been to. The facts are presented in so many different ways that you have no chance to get bored or tired. I wish I come back one day and have the whole day or two only for this place. Without my lovely little children. :) (Who liked it very much too!!!)

  • Best museum ever visited. It's in a beautiful location and the building is quite unique. Exhibitions are very interactive and really manage to stand out from what I have seen in other museums, making it very pleasant to walk by, read, interact and learn something. It seems like it's divided in anthropological (mostly upper) and archeological (lower floors) exhibitions.

  • This is as good as this type of museum can reasonably be expected to be. We only had a few hours to spend but I would get a seasonal pass if I could. Even if you do not like history or archeology, you will be entertained. It is also an extremely children-friendly museum.

  • Best museum I have visited. Even 6 hours is not enough. But we have been pretty slow.
