The Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus, Denmark is a stunning landscape-oriented building boasting a green rooftop and underground terraces. Designed by Henning Larson Architects, the Moesgaard Museum will play host to alternative exhibitions that focus on creating a unique experience for patrons.

The museum building is so focused on each element having multiple uses that even the slanted roof becomes a toboggan hill come winter. The Moesgaard Museum will aim to create an engaging new way to present its material that will appeal to children, parents and grandparents.

The Moesgaard Museum will host workshop-style exhibits that will offer a hands-on cultural learning experience and will add to the museum's goal of pursuing economic, social and environmental sustainability. The museum is an example of the use of interactive conceptual content to bring in new audiences.
