Museums for children in the Aarhus Region

Bring your children to a museum and let them get actively involved. The art museums around the Aarhus Region organise workshops for children wanting to challenge themselves with art techniques and working methods.

At the historical museums, history comes alive with activities filled with fun and games. Below, you will find inspiration for great experiences for children round the museums.

Many of them are open all year round, but particularly during school holidays, they all go that extra mile to set up unforgettable experiences for the youngest visitors.

In many museums there are free admission for everyone under the age of 18.
