contributed by hhm

The Moesgaard Museum is a place where the nature and landscape, architecture and culture meet. Skåde, the hilly area south of Aarhus gives this museum its unique position, visible from the sea. The green roof stretches out from the landscape and is a place where the summer weather can be enjoyed to the fullest. The heart of the building itself is the foyer where the ticket sales, the museum shop and the public café are situated. From here, one can enjoy the impressive view of the Aarhus Bay through great glass walls. The building and the exhibition work together as the building gradually slopes down into the ground, like an excavation of the different layers of earth and time. The permanent exhibition is a time travel to the Viking era of Aarhus. But there is also enough room for temporary exhibitions and events.
