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.

  • One of the most INTERACTIVE museums I've ever been to. Many exhibits were entire rooms that you could enter to see how people lived in that era, or there were touch screens with highly interactive displays where you could glean a multitude of knowledge from. And it was all visually stunning. I was very impressed with this museum and would highly recommend going to see it. It's a bit far out from the city, but 100% worth it. They really go all out with the exhibits! ^_^

  • Top level exhibition, guides you well through the ages with spectacular displays and very see-worthy artifacts. I've never had a more comprehensive experience at a museum. Prepare to spend a whole day here or cut it up in several trips. The many seasonal events here makes an annual pass worth every penny.

  • It was very interesting to learn more about the history. Great efforts have been employed to simulate most of the events as they happened thousands of years ago. Also the stories about the Vikings and the old Danish history was very interesting as well.

  • Absolutely fantastic museum, you can spend quite a few hours in here to keep yourself busy. There are a lot of different and interesting exhibits to look at so take your time when going around.

  • A great place to visit for families and curious individuals of all ages. Great cafeteria with friendly and helpful staff, and some tasty and healthy choices on the menu. Very modern museum with virtual reality, lots of interactive exhibitions and just in general many interesting things to experience. Absolutely worth a visit any time of the year.
