To be honest, if you did not know that this was there, you would walk straight past it. It is just a door with a sign above it on a fairly busy street. If the lady at the tourist information centre (located in Dokk1) had...More

This won't take much of your time but it will give you a clue about the "real" vikings. Clue: not Game of Thrones or giants of men... There's even a preserved body. Worth 30 minutes of your time.

Well hidden, but worth searching out, close to the Domkirke. The basement museum offers a wealth of information and insight into the development of Aarhus.

This is located in the bottom of a bank and difficult to find. There are plenty of city volunteers directing you (thankfully). It takes about 10 minutes to see everything in this small museum To me, it was more of a "teaser" to show you...More

Small museum about vikings in Århus. It's fine and free museum so a good way to kill some spare time.

This museum is probably very well for people who live in Denmark, but for foreign people there is no intesrest. Translation are poor.
