The way to restore a place like that is to make it live again. The art gallery upstairs is small but well worth visiting as they have unique exhibits for limited space and time. 20 minutes is enough.

Nordkraft is a beautiful building in the center of Aalborg. It is full of shops and restaurants, moreover there is also the Tourism office. Something there are vintage markets, concerts and they are nice and well organized.

The inside of the building has been gutted (and looks it). Go up to the 4th floor and there's an agreeable, unpretentious cafe/bar which will serve you decent food and a bottle of beer (try the elderberry one). An excellent choice for a budget lunch.
