The museum building

Prehistory presented innovatively in a breathtaking architectural setting makes for a world-class museum experience when you visit Moesgaard Museum

The past comes alive, and visitors get a better understanding of our history and how we arrived at the present.

Moesgaard Museum is an impressive attraction, not only because of the architectural design of the museum and the exhibitions, but also because of its location in the beautiful surroundings overlooking the forest and the sea.

Scenography, storytelling and extensive research come together in the exhibitions which appeal to visitors of all ages and across generations.

The museum building

Moesgaard Museum accommodates archaeological and ethnographic exhibitions, special exhibitions and student exhibitions.

The close combination of science with new ways of displaying the artefacts and the use of technology is characteristic for the exhibitions of Moesgaard Museum.

Henning Larsen Architects A/S and landscape architect Kirstine Jensen designed the exhibition building which opened in 2014.

The museum has an auditorium, conference rooms, a café, a gift shop, and a grass covered roof where visitors can enjoy the view of the forest, the ocean, and the beautiful landscape

The historical building

Moesgaard Manor, close to the museum building, is home of the museum's administration and Aarhus University offices and student facilities. There is no public access to the buildings, but you are welcome to enjoy the beautiful landscape around the museum, the old manor or enjoy a walk in the park or a walk to Moesgaard Beach.
