  • This museum is nice and free, in the Centre of Aarhus, with pictures and utensils of the Viking age. It runs through in less than an hour.

  • 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.
