Discover the Wonders of Evolution at Denmark's First and Only Dinosaur Museum!

About

Denmark's first dinosaur museum offers rare fossils and new perspectives on evolutionary history.

At the Museum of Evolution, you can experience some of the world's rarest, most complete, and precious fossils from dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, including the world's best-preserved Allosaurus, a giant sloth, and the world's largest skull.

Whether you're a family with children, an enthusiast, or somewhere in between, the Museum of Evolution will give you a fascinating multisensory experience of our shared evolutionary history. The lighting and sound effects, as well as added scents, provide a unique and modern experience, unlike any other place in the world.

The museum contains several world sensations, as it houses many spectacular and extremely valuable discoveries - fossils from dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals that have been excavated over the past few years and together cover 300 million years of evolutionary history.

The museum houses the genuine skeletons of a range of dinosaurs, ten animals from the Permian period - the time before the dinosaurs - as well as large animals from the Ice Age. The two buildings that make up the Museum of Evolution span over 1,000 square meters.

Ultimate predator

One of the museum's absolute main attractions is the Allosaurus “Big Joe” - an impressive 9-meter-long and 1.5 ton heavy, intimidating carnivore that lived in the Jurassic period 155 million years ago. “Big Joe's” skeleton is the most well-preserved Allosaurus skeleton ever found - and one of the most complete dinosaur skeletons excavated to date.

Land's largest skull

Another heavyweight at the museum is the horned and rare Torosaur “Adam”, which weighed an impressive 6.5 tons. With a length of over three meters, its the worlds biggest skull of any land living animal.

World's most important fossil

The museum's most precious fossil is the extremely rare Archaeopteryx fossil - one of only twelve in the world. Archaeopteryx is also called the world's most important fossil because it confirms Darwin's theory of evolution, as it is a creature that is half bird, half dinosaur - also known as a transitional species. The rare fossil has previously been inaccessible to the public, but at the Museum of Evolution, you can now experience the sensational fossil up close for the first time.

Other prehistoric animals

The museum also offers a selection of genuine skeletons of animals that lived during the Ice Age, after the dinosaurs. Among them is a giant sloth that stands fascinatingly on its hind legs, reaching 4.5 meters in height.

In the exhibition about the Permian period, you'll learn about one of the most significant events in the history of life, namely when the first large animals became land-based, and you'll meet ten animals from the Permian period.
