Visit this museum just to see and explore the architecture. It's great and the museum itself is also in the absolute best end of museums in the whole Denmark.

This is probably one of the best places to visit in Aarhus. You have a wonderful museum, with permanent expositions about the vikings and then you also have temporal exposition. Please go :-)
