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 time in each place.

Located in the basement of a Nordea bank, this little museum displays Viking era artifacts uncovered on site. Worth a short visit.

If you have people that really can't stand museums or you're only in town for one day then squeeze this in. No viking ship any more (maybe it was moved to Roskilde?). Otherwise go to nearby Moesgaard Museum for a much better more interactive viking exhibit. Meh.

It's Tiny! Did it in 10mins with our 6yo- Didn't see the Viking ship that others have posted so not sure if that was a temp display.

Our Rick Steves tour took advantage of this free museum. The history of the Viking age was well covered, and the exhibits are educational for visitors of all ages.

Very impressive. Boatyard with shipwrights using contemporary tools and techniques to build C9 boat. Superbly displayed originals. Highly recommended.

A hidden gem open to the general public for FREE. It is quite small but very well done. This gave us a great 1-hour side trip that we won't forget.
