  • If you have people that really can't stand museums or you're only in town for one day then squeeze this in. No viking ship any more (maybe it was moved to Roskilde?). Otherwise go to nearby Moesgaard ...  more »
  • Very centrally located in Aarhus is a small museum, which we most readily come to overlook when you walk by on the Street outside. The case of the Viking Museum, where you literally go down in Aarhus for more a thousand years ago. It is located just opposite the Cathedral and Theatre. You walk in through a door next to the Nordea Bank, down a flight of stairs, where the Aarhus ' level is indicated by year for each stair step, for it comes right off the bottom approximately 3 meters down, as is the level of Aarhus in the Viking age. You get an excellent and vivid impression of how that looked exactly in this place during the Viking age, and how people lived back then. The Museum is well worth a visit, and so it is completely free.

  • It's Tiny! Did it in 10mins with our 6yo- Didn't see the Viking ship that others have posted so not sure if that was a temp display.

  • The story of early Århus, told with replicas, real artifacts, pictures and illustrations. Very interesting but not a place you spend a long time.
  • The most exciting feature of this museum is its location at the actual site of the excavation. The museum gives a really good impression of how the city of Aarhus looked like in the Viking era. However, the nearby museum of Moesgaard gives a more complete picture of Denmark in ancient times.
  • Good but only couple buildings. Don't miss the ring couple hundred meters away.
  • Fri adgang. Flot fortælling, bl.a. årstallene på trappen for byens højde.
  • More like a small exhibit rather than a full museum, but it’s free to go inside and has interesting information about the history of vikings and how they lived. The entrance can be hard to find since it’s in the basement of a regular building.
