Århus Mølle (Aarhus Mill) is a building in Aarhus, Denmark. The mill dates back to at least 1289 but the oldest of the existing buildings are from the 1600s while the main building is from c. 1700. The building complex comprise three buildings; a main building from c. 1700, a stables from the 1600s and a malt mill from 1782. Originally constructed on Vestergade in the Indre by neighborhood it has since been moved to the Old Town Museum where it is now used as the main administrative building and for some museum-related workshops.

Aarhus Mill was built at some point in the early Middle Age. The exact date is not known but it is mentioned for the first time in records from 1289 and later in 1581 when a new mill was built. The mill was built on the Aarhus river west of Aarhus and east of Brabrand Lake and was mainly used for malt and flour production. In the later Middle Age it became illegal to mill products privately and farmers were forced to use one of the official, royally recognized mills, including Århus Mill
