Moesgaard Museum

© Moesgaard Museum

The past will be brought to fascinating life at the new Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus.

Presenting the past in a magnificent architectural setting
Prehistory presented innovatively in a breathtaking architectural setting makes for a world-class museum experience when you visit the Moesgaard Museum. The past becomes alive and the people behind the exhibits will step forward in the exhibitions thus providing visitors with a better understanding of the past and how we arrived at where we are in the present.
An international attraction
The new Moesgaard Museum will be a huge attraction not only because of the architectural design of the museum and the exhibitions, but also due to its location in the beautiful natural surroundings south of Aarhus, overlooking the woods and sea.
A museum experience for everyone
Staged settings, dramatized storytelling, and state-of-the-art research all combine to make the exhibitions at the new museum appeal to visitors of all ages while also creating a sense of bonding, fellowship and shared experience across generations.
Odder Museum
At Odder Museum, which is a part of Moesgaard Museum, you can see and enjoy a large number of exhibitions which focus on local history and recent times.
The Viking Museum
During this period, the Viking Museum in the Bispetorv square will also function as a pivotal point for some of Moesgaard Museum's many activities to bring the past to the public.
