The Best 5 Museums in Denmark

Museums in Denmark: ARoS

One of the most colourful and largest art museums in Northern Europe, ARoS, with a spectacular rooftop rainbow panorama. While walking through the rainbow tunnel, the feeling is somewhat surreal; it opens a 360-degree view over Denmark’s second-largest city – Aarhus.

Finally, it is a unique and exciting experience for kids and adults.
