The Lindholm Hoje Museum and the adjacent Viking burial ground are must-see sites for anyone visiting Aalborg. The burial site itself is a sprawling hillside covered with mounds and stone markers, with interpretive plaques placed strategically. It can be visited free of charge and is interesting enough in itself. But by paying the relatively nominal entry fee for the museum, you will be able to get a much better appreciation of the burial site, and of Viking life in the Aalborg region. The older part of the museum is devoted to interpretation and presentation of the burial site. It shows artifacts and reconstructions, and tells the history of how the site was discuvered and excavated. The new exhibits in the basement expand greatly on the storyline, with excellent displays on neolithic tool-making, burial customs, the development of tools through the iron and Bronze Ages, Viking social structure, trading, warfare, and so on. The artifacts on display are of very high quality and are presented thoughtfully. English interpretation sheets are available. What is more, this is one of a series of museums that are in association across Denmark such that paying to visit one gives you free or discounted access to all the rest! If you cannot visit the National Museum in Copenhagen (or even if you CAN), you really must visit Lindholm Hoje.
