Moesgaard Beach and MuseumSeptember 14, 2017 in Denmark
Today it's Ib's turn to show us his special places. He takes us for a bit of a tour of Aarhus, some bits we've seen already with Karen but we have Ib's interpretation, plus a few others. Also we go for a chemist run to top up on cough medicine and panadol etc for us with colds. It looks like Karen may have caught it too :(
We go and see Moesgaard Strand, a beach that is very nice and looks as it would be very busy in the summertime. Then we drive through the forest of beech trees to get to the museum. We were here 5 years ago but the museum today was not there then. Then, it was a weekend get together of viking re-enactment people/festival that we could go and visit.
This museum is built into the hill and has grassed roofs that you can walk on. The museum is not just about the vikings, it is an archeological and anthropological museum as well, so many of the exhibits are about other cultures. Aarhus Uni also have something to do with it. Ib has done work there too.
There was an Australian Aboriginal Christmas room!! There were very clever technological interactive stations right through the museum. We spent 3-4 hours but could've spent more.
Home for a late lunch and the usual arvo rest. This cold really makes you tired by the afternoon.
Poor Karen, I feel bad that she may have caught our bug
Thor is on his way home on the bus but is held up by a 12 car accident on one of the bridges so we may not see him tonightRead more
