Naturhistorisk Museum Aarhus
At Naturhistorisk Museum, the Natural History Museum in Aarhus you can experience the abundance of life inhabiting Earth. Experience the museum’s four permanent exhibitions and changing special exhibitions. This includes getting close-up to the animals on the African savanna or time travelling through the Danish landscape from the Ice Age to the present day.
Visit the AnimaliA exhibition – the A to Z of survival, which gives a different perspective on evolution and The Global Backyard, portraying the vast diversity of life on Earth. And be sure not to miss Oceans of Freedom – an exhibition about the Danish adventurer Troels Kløvedal and life on the ship Nordkaperen.
Be sure also to pop by the magnetic animal to see if you can assemble the skeleton correctly. During all major school holidays there are many special activities on the bill. How about watching a live dissection, or touching a snake! Check out Facebook and the calendar on the website for what’s going on.
What is the Natural History Museum really?
This museum is the second largest of its kind in Denmark, both in terms of the size of its collections and exhibit space. The museum exhibition comprises more than 5,000 different animals from all over the world – many in settings displaying their natural habitats. The purpose of the museum is to promote research within the field of natural history and to make the public aware of the scientific results within this area. Visitors with disabilities can get around everywhere in the exhibitions, however the elevator does not go to the 3rd floor.
