The ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum is an art museum in Aarhus, Denmark. The museum was established in 1859 and is the oldest public art museum in Denmark outside of Copenhagen. On 8 April 2004, ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum opened with exhibitions in a brand new modern building, 10 storeys tall with a total floor area of 20,700 m² and designed by Danish architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen. Today ARoS is one of the largest art museums in northern Europe with a total of 816,468 visitors in 2015. This figure includes visitors who in one way or another have redeemed ticket (569.324) and people who have visited ARoS Shop, ART Café or gone through the building (247,144).

ARoS features a shop, café and restaurant. The architectural vision of the museum was completed in 2011, with the addition of the circular skywalk Your rainbow panorama by Ólafur Elíasson. The installation has helped boost the museum's attendance, making it the second most visited museum in Denmark, just behind the well-known Louisiana Museum in Humlebæk. [source]
