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
Nice museum with cool things and old tools. It had a cool man who was found in a bog here in Denmark, he is called grauballemanden. It has lots of old hunting tools as well as things that give you an insight into how life was in the old days. It has a shop, restaurant and good parking right next to a forest. It's also surrounded by fields probably with animals like cows, maybe even som ducks. Ducks are very cool. Cows are cool too but not as cool as ducks. Sheep have wool that is used for making some clothes. I love it
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!
Really nice museum. There is far too much for one to be able to see it all in one day, yet everything is of high quality with high production values. If one cares to read it, there is a plethora of information available plus several visual/auditory experiences. The only downside is how far away it is from everything, but bus 18 will take one there from the center of Aarhus.
Great place to go. Whether you like nature or indoor activities, this is a nice place to spend half a day. The exhibitions are thorough and well-made. Aside from that, the natural surroundings are excellent for a sunday stroll
This is very big and nice museum, I highly recommend for you to visit since it is not far away from Aarhus (if you are visiting the city), very nice permanent collection. However, I liked the best current exhibition about the Mongolian nomads. Superb! It will last till April 2019
