The Viking Museum is located at the square of Skt. Clemens Market . It is located beneath the Nordea bank building and is situated upon the site of an archaeological excavation of the 1960s, below street level. The excavations revealed various Viking Age structures, items, and parts of a human skeleton. The museum provides information regarding the history of Viking Age Aarhus in general and also features copies of items on display at the much larger Moesgaard Museum to the south of Aarhus. After a period of renovation, the museum reopened during the Aarhus Viking Town Market on May 24, 2008. The museum is administered by the Moesgård Museum and financed by both Aarhus Municipality and Nordea. There are no entry fees.

A small and well-arranged Museum that does not overwhelm the visitors with too much information or flashy effects. It is an excellent introduction to the city's medieval past. Truly recommended.

Fascinating museum. Quite normal at the beginning but when you enter the tour through one family history it turns out to be perfect. Amazing place
literally nothing interesting, it's definitely not worth paying 30 kroner for it. maximum 10 minutes of sightseeing
