Amazing museum with very modern storytelling. Fantastic tableaus and great use of modern technology. Go there wednesday late afternoon and have dinner at the restaurant afterwards - that makes a good day!

The building is awesome and is alone worth a visit. Much like the Oslo Opera House. The displays/audiovisuals are very interesting and lifts up the collection from just being artefacts dug up from the ground.

A world class museum. Uses a wide variety of techniques and technologies to present information. I went to see “the bog man” but stayed to see so much more. It is well-worth the bus trip from Aarhus.

Beautiful modern, minimalistic museum building in a wonderful setting, close to the forest and beach. Very interesting changing exhibits from all over the world. A rather small-moderate size museum, overseeable, and a nice cafe. Highly recommended.
