The physical proximity between the university campus and the museum at Moesgaard has fostered a fruitful environment for collaborative initiatives between the two instutions.

We believe that the shared environment and the unique collaboration between the museum and the university holds the potential to position Moesgaard as an international power-house for the research, dissemination and utilisation of cultural heritiage. 

The overarching goal of this website is to highlight the benefits of the collaboration between Moesgaard Museum and Aarhus University and to promote its further development.
