  • It is a good idea to take the elevator up and start from the top ... further up the stairs on the roof there is a fantastic view of Århus. You walk around in a time (Rainbow) on the roof. Boy is impressive well made and certainly worth a visit. There are also interactive sites where children can experiment. Good experience.

  • nice,the exhibition was good and include a variety of goldage painters of very good quality. But the view in a rainy day was poor - i would like to se it in a sunny day 
  • Aros is not only spectacular because of is architecture. It is an institution that successfully has worked hard to make art in all its forms accessible to a broader public. It has also been successful...  more »

  • What a beautiful place, we had a very good time in it! The rooftop was a lot of fun, but don't miss any of the exhibitions! There was an interactive one where you could jump on trampolines, it was like nothing I had seen before. The exhibition where the giant kid is was also very interesting.
  • [EDIT] Important: Always find out what’s open at the moment before going there! First Visit in august 2014: Very cool museum, quite unusual exhibition, you can easily spent there half an day Second Visit in august 2016: This time it was very different... 2 hours were too much 1) one of the biggest exhibitions was Very FAMILY_UNFRIENDLY, and probably also not too appropriate for religious people 2) the colorful fog room was closed. they said it is a permanent exhibition but available only sometimes... scam. 3) 2 levels were closed completely 4) the biggest exhibition was about some gay stuff, which is for sure a legit topic for art, but it was a bit overly dominating the whole exposition of the museum. it also wasn’t easy to grasp the point 5) otherwise, some art that looked not like modern, some art that looked exactly like modern :D few things to see for others than art students.
  • Great museum with lots of differents art style. I particularly liked Robert Mapplethorpe's photos + the wonderful rainbow tunnel on the roof of the museum. I suggest you to go there !
  • So-so art museum pulling a scam on tourists charging bogus fees for foreign credit cards. If you question it, the manager will give you a story that they get charged fees abroad too, completely ignoring the fact that those fees are charged by her bank. At Aros you first get charged by them then a fee by your own bank. This despicable behavior is unfortunately common in small stores but places like Aros is a disgrace to our country treating tourists like this.
  • Such a great museum. Can be a bit of a hassle to get around with a stroller, but other than that, no complaints at all.
