  • We arrived at the Museum with a flood and we have refugees inside the Museum. Huge and somewhat distracting. Brilliant movies sights on prehistoric characters on the steps before joining real. Inside there are several interactive points for children. Nice idea of objects that speak of the character to which they belong, obviously all in English or Danish, to present the history of the Vikings. Interesting "blind" with elmo and bowhunting. Your we is full of people so it takes longer to visit it at least it takes about 3 hours. Being Sunday there were too many people to be able to even approach the Museum's cafeteria with a panoramic terrace. Impressive conservation status Grauballe man, bog body more famous in the world. The mummy is well preserved, with nails and hair, fingers, shaving, hair and skin with colors altered by time and prolonged immersion in the swamp. Grauballe man's death is due to the cut throat, even though the body has fractured skull and leg. The reason for his murder is unknown. It is thought to have been sacrificed or who has been the victim of an execution because of some offense accomplished. Carbon 14 dating established that death dates back to 290 BC. It seems he was a man of about 30 years in good physical health. As soon as the clouds have given respite we moved on foot, but you can also do it by car, 2 km from the Viking Museum at sea, Moot. The Viking Moot is an event that is made every year. Whole families with children in tow, moved here to live as in the days of the Vikings for 3 days. in the mud and hygienic conditions not too precise. We ate a hot dog on site, for the more adventurous there are concoctions of Viking recipes. Of course beer and cider! The ticket price includes the Museum and costs dkk 140 for adults while children are free. I recommend walking shoes (better galoshes) umbrella and k-wey for rain and mud. The sea is 2 steps for those wishing to join the Danes to bathe ...

  • Best museum in Denmark. Lots of original artifacts dating back as far as 3000BC. Very modern exhibition with many well-crafted AV displays and interactive activities. Great for ages 5-99. Extraordinary architecture.
  • Rigtig flot sted med interessante udstillinger. Jeg fandt nederste etage lidt ensformig efterhånden som man kom længere igennem. Stueetagen og 1. etage havde to meget spændende udstillinger med interessante emner og flot indretning. Vil anbefale alle I området at tage et kig fordi. Hvis ikke for udstillingerne, så for arkitekturen.
  • Great museum in a great building. Interactive, interesting and nice use of technology. Recommend. Bus 18 will get you there from the city.
  • Excellent experience. Well worth a visit for the museum, but the architecture and building itself is impressive. The movie project/exhibition is fantastic. Well done!
  • This isn't any regular museum. It's modern, has lots of interactive exhibitions, and info and audio is also in English. Very educational and family friendly place. We spent hours going through everything. Parking is plenty and free. On the top of the building are grass areas that can be walked, and a view of the surrounding forest is provided.

Where to stay in Aarhus

For a price, you can stay close to the main sights of this charming city at one of the many hotels located in Aarhus' historical old town. While it may feel like a romantic small town with its cobbled streets, accommodations here, especially centrally located options or hotels along the marina, are just as expensive as in many other Scandinavian cities. Moderately priced hotels and hostels are limited, so if you are traveling on a budget, book early at a spot outside the city center. For nature lovers passing through the city, there are also campgrounds located near Aarhus in the beautiful surrounding forests.
