For a colorful view of the city, climb to the top of Aros Aarhus Kunstmuseum. This museum, one of the largest in this part of Europe, features a circular skywalk with windows painted in the colors of the rainbow. The skywalker's panorama changes colors depending on the angle of viewing and the weather conditions. Before you head to the top of the building, explore the museum's downstairs galleries of Danish art from the 1700s to the present day. The vast collection includes masterpieces by N.A. Abildgaard, C.W. Eckersberg, Christen Dalsgaard, and Edvard Petersen.

  • Love, love, love ARoS!! Take your time to see it all! Exhibitions are well-curated and the many different points of entry to the art leave long-lasting impressions. You get sucked in and don't want...

  • We came with high expectations and were extremely disappointed Weird exhibitions, no explanations, weird wooden stuff. Other than the famous rainbow panorama and the huge boy, we did find anything...

  • My 13 year old grandson and I visited this museum. It was interesting and provocative but not always comfortable. The Rainbow Panorama was very cool and it was fun to walk around and see the city...

  • Great Museum! It proves definitely that modern art does not have to be boring and strange, but can be beautiful, inspiring and a great experience. The Vertigo exhibition was really exceptional. The many projections of dancing people, together with the music really gave me the feeling of being totally emerged in the project. Also the dried plant exhibition was really impressive. Read the text next to the plants.
  • Huge fan of this museum. It has great permanent exhibitions and interesting short term exhibits. It's a bit much to do the whole museum in one day though. So it's definitely worth getting a years admission card that can let you enjoy it just a little at a time. The year admission cards also let you bring a friend in for free each time. So it's a great investment!
  • Works of art organized in sequential categories with interviews and comments from normal people on the side. Easily understandable by a novice such as me :-). I was actually there because of the museum’s architecture. The food at the coffee shop was a pleasant surprise.
  • A lot of exhibitions under one roof. It's all skewing a little bit too modern for my taste, so I really loved the exhibition showing various aspects of "human nature" portrayed through 200 years of painting. The rooftop rainbow installation is deeply fascinating and a must-see.
  • Nice coloured walkway on top. Has a massive boy statue. Could have spent more time. We had a conference dinner up there, food was superb. Don't know about the cafe normally, but it bodes well.
