The entrance looks like a bank (that is because it is located under Nordea Bank) which takes you one level down under ground to the museum. Interesting fact about the location of the museum is that it is situated on the site of an archaeological...More

This compact museum provides a good introduction to Viking culture. They weren't all about marauding and plundering; they were farmers and townspeople, as well. There are a few artifacts on display and a number of explanations in Danish and English about their houses and lifestyle....More

There is not a lot of space to work with down here, but what they have done with the place is lay it out so that you do not have to stress about seeing everything. The displays offer a great insight into Aarhus at a...More

This is a compact, downstairs location right next the Rolex shop in the Latin Quarter area. You can easily walk by it and not notice it. It's set up nicely. They excavated below street level and ran into old Viking houses. The museum is laid...More

The Aarhus Viking Museum (different from the Moesgaard museum) is constructed on the very same spot where the Viking found the town Aarhus (Aros) some 1200 years ago. This small underground museum is extremely well planned and designed. The visual, audio programs and artifacts give...More

Located in a basement area of a building, very informative, display boards to explain the artifacts, no interactive or technological exhibits, but that makes a nice change sometimes, so I am not sure if it would appeal to young children because of this. No entry...More

It's hard to leave a real review for a place I haven't entered, but we did go at 3:45 on a weekday and it was closed. The sign on the door said it was open until 4pm. Disappointing! Consistency is key as many have limited...More
