Museum Aarhus

© Den Gamle By

At Museum Aarhus you can experience the history of the city of Aarhus through text and through illustration.

The old urban museum has moved into new premises in Den Gamle By where the history of Aarhus will now be presented. And there is so much about Aarhus in Den Gamle By. Today and in the coming years you will be able to experience many new things about Aarhus through exhibitions, events, lectures, guided tours, books, and apps.

The unique bonding between the Den Gamle By urban museum and the history of Aarhus provides a marvellous, all-encompassing setting where time and period events are allowed to blend perfectly.

The Aarhus Story
Excavation work has begun in Den Gamle By on the construction of a new museum which will be a truly magnificent exhibition about life in Aarhus and in Denmark. The exhibition will occupy 700 square meters, and it will be located underground for the final stage of the Danish town district of 1974 in Den Gamle By.
