The combination of science with new ways of displaying the artefacts and the use of technology is characteristic for the exhibitions of the new museum. At the new Moesgaard Museum you will literally come face-to-face with the ancestors of the human race on the staircase in the museum foyer.
Among the impressive finds and artefacts from around the world, you find some of the best preserved people from the Bronze Age and meet the world’s best preserved bog body, Grauballe Man. In addition, the exhibitions showcase amazing weapons pieces from the Iron Age as well as provide the opportunity to venture on a journey with the Vikings from Aros – the former name of the city of Aarhus.
The ethnographic exhibition, The Lives of the Dead, allows the visitors to experience the many different ways people around the world remember their deceased relatives – whether it be through Danish heirlooms, reburials in Uganda, the Day of the Dead in Mexico, or by celebrating Christmas with the deceased among the Aboriginals in Australia.
The staircase leading to the ethnographic exhibitions displays precise reconstructions of three contemporary people: An Australian aborigine, Stephen Hawking, the internationally acclaimed British physicist, and a Siberian female shaman - each offering their very diverse estimates of where we as humans come from and where we are going.
In addition to the elaborate exhibitions, visitors to Moesgaard Museum will be able to enjoy the beautiful building and the view from the grass covered roof or visit the gift shop and the museum café. You can also enjoy the superb golden age landscape around the new museum, the old manor and take a walk in the park or to the beautiful Moesgård Beach.
