We stumbled across this museum when walking through Aarhus. It was free, so we wondered in. Very informative. We learned a lot about the vikings.

“Very small but worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

It won't take long but sometimes museums are more memorable in bite sized chunks. Some very interesting displays, particularly the original Viking wooden roadway. Even twenty minutes will leave you knowing more about these adventurous people.

“Tiny Basement Museum”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

It's nice to see a bit of the viking history of denmark. Good for a 5-10 minute look around. The place could really be more interesting, but then again. It's free, and you get what you paid for.

“Nice little museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

The picture is NOT from this museum - but from the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde. However, it is worth going down through the history of Aarhus. It is a bit difficult to find - you need to go through a bank (Nordea) to find it. It is free of charge, and it has a great feeling about it.

“necessarily need to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

museum is located at the bank building NOREDA - an exhibition of finds made ​​in the construction of the bank

Like all museums in Denmark is very professionally done - its interactivity is exemplary

part of the exhibition are evidence of the cruelty of life in Viking times - traces the use of weapons on documenting human remains discovered how simple and at the same time then it was dangerous life

we are in awe of ....
