The Steno Museum is part of the Faculty of Science at Aarhus University, and it sort of makes you wish that other science faculties would think of doing something cool like this more often. They’re three things to see here – the Museum and Planetorium, the Observatory and the Greenhouses. The museum tself will followe the development of science and it’s impact on our world – from the discovery of fire, t the advance of mathematics, to the invention of the railway to the transition of our understanding of the universe from a geocentric to a heliocentric one. Though the observatory is no longer used to make any genuine scientific advances, it’s nevertheless a brilliant place for public presentations.

A very good science museum. It is not very large but has a variety of rooms with enough interesting exhibits to keep the visitor entertained for a few hours. Highly recommended.
Good science exhibition, however some of them are outdated. Very affordable
The parts of this museum that are good are great - the medicinal garden and sections on space and history of science are fantastic. However, I would say the medical and pathological exhibitions were creepy at best and downright terrifying at worst. It may be cultural sensitivity on our part as we're from the UK, but I found myself quite quickly wanting to leave. I wouldn't recommend taking children - I don't think this would be child friendly. Overall, it's an honest museum - it doesn't pull any punches. However, to actually enjoy it you would need a very strong constitution.
Very interesting place for both children and parents, there are descriptions in English
It is a waste of money and time to go there .. the history of science part is closed and it is not even mentioned on the website .. all labels are in Danish so as a tourist you won't understand anything.
