The Museum at Moesgaard
The new museum covers 161,458 square feet and is designed by Henning Larsen Architects. It accommodates archaeological and ethnographic exhibitions, special exhibitions, student exhibitions, 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 surrounding Moesgaard Manor – the previous home of Moesgaard Museum. The historical building, The Moesgaard Manor is now home of Aarhus University offices and student facilities. There is no public access to the buildings, but you are most welcome to enjoy the beautiful landscape around the new museum, the old manor and enjoy a walk in the park or a walk to Moesgaard Beach.
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.
The new museum building is designed by Henning Larsen Architect and cost 393 million Danish kroner.
