The Womens Museum - Review

One of the women’s museums in the world – this place showcases the development, evolution and impact of Danish women on the history of the country. The first of the two expansive permanent collections is Womens’s Lives, which covers a vast range of roles in great detail: prehistoric, middle ages, education and rights,  the relationship between mistress and servant, birth, housekeeping, wartime roles, health and physical care and the struggle for equality. The other permanent exhibition is the History of Childhood that looks into child mortality, child labour, schooling, play and toys, clothes, books and media. In addition, there are always a number of excellent temporary exhibitions looking into prominent women or women-centric projects. Do check out the website for information on upcoming exhibitions.

The Womens Museum, Aarhus Reviews

  • Absolutely love this museum! A great timeline of women’s rights in Denmark and elsewhere in the world. Displayed in a way that’s easy to understand. On the top floor they have some history of the Aarhus theatre too! Would highly recommend!

  • Visited the WWII museum underneath the women's museum and it was fun. They tell the story of occupied Aarhus under the second world war. There is a lot of interesting stories and memorabilia there, I liked the posters, and old satercial newspaper clippings the most. The gun collection was also fun to see.

  • A gem smack in the middle of the city. Interactive expos of different themes. A must visit.

  • Its big but you don't know much about the womens history

  • This place is a total rip off!! A whole floor practically empty and another floor with different stories of women with just pages (A4 size) hanging from the ceiling with all the information. The props used in this floor are bland and fail to enhance the experience. You can go through the whole "museum" in 20 min. tops. It is a real shame that the concept of a museum about women gets ruined by such a poor and lazy attempt. There is a lot to say about the progress and struggles of women throughout the years and there is so much information our there, but this place just shows a glimpse of it and it is displayed in a way that it is not particularly friendly for the visitor, in some parts it almost appears that no thought was put into the design in terms of user experience. For comparison, the Viking museum across the street is free and has more content, and the Dem Gamle By costs the same and there is enough content there for at least 3 to 4 hours (If not more) Unless the place undergoes a radical change they should stop charging an entrance fee or they should just close the museum until they get their act together.
