Moesgaard Museum

We both really enjoyed the Moesgaard Museum. I would say it is one of the best museums we have ever visited and we have been to a lot!

 The museum building with its' sloping grass covered roof. You can walk on the roof and enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside.

 Evolution Stairway - leads you to the prehistory exhibitions.

 Two of the reconstructed humans on the Evolution Stairway.

 Lucy - She lived over 3 million years ago. She is the first reconstruction you meet on the stairway.

 Reconstruction of what the human would have looked life from a found skull bone.

 Queen Tove and a carpenter. Two of the figures in an area that explained how the vikings lived. The figures described their lives. They were very realistic.

 Viking battle clothing.

 Dugout canoe with holograms on the floor projecting flowing water. The photo does not show how effective it was.

 Artifacts - One of the interesting ways they displayed found items was to show how they were found, suspended in layers without the surrounding dirt.

 Artifacts from the Bronze Age.

 A display from the Middle Ages.

 The Borum Eshoj graves. People from the Bronze Age buried in oak coffins. The clothing is in amazing condition.

 Grauballe Man - The world's best preserved body from a bog from the Iron Age.

Disply from the Life of the Dead exhibit.
