  • .. from 1857 are women's Museum. Here you can (almost) always see an interesting exhibition, or spend time in the permanent collection. Remember to look at the old meeting rooms from the time the House was still a town hall. On the ground floor are the Museum's cafe, which is also worth a visit because of the old furniture and exhibits. The coffee is not something to cheer for, thin and half cold .... it is a sad end to the visit.

  • Is a small, valuable Museum. Tells the story of women in Denmark and the fight for your rights. Has interesting exhibitions too. Free of charge.

  • A well-designed, thought-provoking museum with interactive displays, in a beautiful building with a café serving home-made cakes. When I visited it had one of the Aarhus 2017 exhibitions, 'Venus envy'...  more »

  • Visited the WWII museum underneath the women's museum and it was fun. They tell the story of occupied Aarhus under the second world war. There is a lot of interesting stories and memorabilia there, I liked the posters, and old satercial newspaper clippings the most. The gun collection was also fun to see.
  • A gem smack in the middle of the city. Interactive expos of different themes. A must visit.
  • Its big but you don't know much about the womens history
  • Expected a little more, but really worth a visit.
  • This place is a total rip off!! A whole floor practically empty and another floor with different stories of women with just pages (A4 size) hanging from the ceiling with all the information. The props used in this floor are bland and fail to enhance the experience. You can go through the whole "museum" in 20 min. tops. It is a real shame that the concept of a museum about women gets ruined by such a poor and lazy attempt. There is a lot to say about the progress and struggles of women throughout the years and there is so much information our there, but this place just shows a glimpse of it and it is displayed in a way that it is not particularly friendly for the visitor, in some parts it almost appears that no thought was put into the design in terms of user experience. For comparison, the Viking museum across the street is free and has more content, and the Dem Gamle By costs the same and there is enough content there for at least 3 to 4 hours (If not more) Unless the place undergoes a radical change they should stop charging an entrance fee or they should just close the museum until they get their act together.
