MOMU Moesgaard Museum

The past is brought to fascinating life at the 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 in the exhibits will step forward and provide the visitors with a better understanding of the past and how we arrived at where we are in the present.


An international attraction

The Moesgaard Museum is 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. Moesgaard Museum has been awarded two Michelin stars in the Michelin tourist attraction's guide.

The evolutionary stairway

The evolutionary stairway at Moesgaard Museum is not only a key element of the architecture, which leads to the various exhibitions of the museum, it is also very much an opportunity for you to see where we human beings originate from.

On the stairs you will see seven hominins. They were members of the tribe Hominini, which means ”human species”, but they don't all look like the modern human being. 

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.
