  • An amazing museum with lots of things to see! I especially liked the part covering the stoneage. The viking part requires you to select a person to follow. Not my kind of exibition since I prefer the....  more »
  • This place is really worth a visit and make sure to set aside the whole day! Lots to see and learn. We liked the exhibit with the "Myra"-people the best.  more »
  • Exceptional museum inside and out. Covering early human history up to mediaeval times in their permanent exhibitions and with stunning temporary exhibitions, Moesgaard is a must visit!  more »

  • Well done museum that covers many aspects of human history. Most famous for the peat bog man (Grauballe Man) but please do not make the mistake of jumping straight there and skipping the rest. The curators have done a fabulous job of covering many aspects of Denmark's History. Of course there is a significant amount of material about the Vikings. I recommend starting in the basement and working your way through the museum. We allotted about 4-hours, it was not enough.
  • Lovely day, lovely experience. Great place for the whole family, really interactive museum. The children that were around seemed to be really enjoying themselves. Highlight for me was definitely the bog man. Excellent, high quality exhibits. Would highly recommend for people to attend. It almost missed our itinerary for Aarhus.
  • Fantastic museum. I don’t have a particularly strong interest in such distant history, but the playful, interactive and experimental design of the exhibitions made it so interesting, that I stayed for 4 hours. It is truly unique and inspiring.
  • Great museum in a beautiful landscape. You shouldn't miss a walk through the forest to the nearby beach. You will see some historical buildings and beautiful nature on the way.
  • So much fun! Great history. Fascinating exhibits. Definitely wish we had had more time to explore and experience.
