Natural History Museum sets up special exhibitions on a regular basis. Some are large and some are small, but in general they are based on our own collection.
Johnny's bird skulls
Sometimes the museum is lucky to receive unique collections from private collectors. Johnny Leo Pedersen’s huge collection of bird skulls is one of them. For 50 years, Johnny has been collecting, cleaning and categorizing the dead birds he has found in nature. This is an exhibition of one man’s passion and life’s work.
Aarhus - the living city
Nature and urban life do not have to be in contradiction. Actually, wild nature seems to adapt well to urban life – wherever space is given for it to flourish. Right now, the Natural Museum in Aarhus and Life Exhibitions are displaying the photo exhibition Rethink Urban Habitats that focus on showing nature in the city. The project is funded by Aarhus 2017 - European Capital of Culture.
