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

  • This is a lovely museum with an anthropological perspective. There is a nice exhibit on the stone age peoples of northern Europe, using innovative and appealing ways to present information using quality dioramas, film, sound, lighting, even VR. Highlight of the museum for me is the evolutionary staircase. I took my then 4 year old and she enjoyed it very much. Cafe is great, too if you want a bite to eat. A visit is definitely recommended.

  • They did brilliant approach to visualize Time travel through different ages and the origin of life. Great use of interactive, audio-visual and tech savvy methods which makes this museum interesting for all age groups.

  • Great place. A little off the main road and hard to find but worth it. Great archeology and anthropology displays primarily of Denmark. Cafeteria is terrific with a wonderful view.

  • Very nice museum and great architecture of the building itself. Had a nice journey back in time to Vikings era ūüėć

  • Excellent museum. Great display of Danish History. Did not have time to see the other archeological exhibits but what I saw was well done.
