Natural History Museum

Fun activities for children

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.

Visit the AnimaliA exhibition – the A to Z of survival, which gives a different perspective on evolution. And be sure not to miss The Global Backyard, an exhibition portraying the vast diversity of life on earth.

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.

The Molslaboratoriet Research Station

You can also pay a visit to the Molslaboratoriet research station located in the scenic Mols Bjerge area approx. 40 minutes by car from Aarhus. Even though it is a research station, you are still welcome to go for a stroll along the marked trails. You can borrow equipment for free to take with you out into nature to learn something new about lizards, stones, butterflies, and much much more.
