Site Overview

Covering all Denmark's prehistory using modern interaction

Mosegård Museum is 10km south of Aarhus. It is housed in a remarkable building built in 2014, with a staircase as a focal point.


Covering all of Denmark’s prehistory, there is a permanent exhibition about the Viking Age and an exhibition on Medieval Denmark in c.1050-1536.

The exhibitions are highly interactive, in several languages, and are designed to appeal to as broad an audience as possible, without losing academic depth and accuracy.


Artefacts include the Graubelle Man – a bog body from Grauballe, Denmark – and some of the most interesting rune stones from Denmark, including the Mask stone. The carved snaptun stone is often identified as the face of the god Loki.


There are various reconstructed buildings in the grounds, including a house from the Viking-Age town of Hedeby, near Schleswig, Germany, dated to around 870, and a pit-house from Viking-Age Aarhus, dated to about 900. (Pit-houses are small huts, dug half-way into the ground, and used as dwellings, workshops or storerooms.)

An early Danish stave church was reconstructed following the excavation of an example from Hørning, dated to around 1060.
