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.
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 in south of Aarhus, overlooking the woods and sea.
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.
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.
Normally the museum is closed on Mondays but during the summer holiday they are open on Mondays from May 2nd till August 26th 2019 and in the weeks 7 and 42.
The museum is open for audience on Danish bank holidays such as Easter holidays and the 5th of June.
