This is a must visit if you are nearby. An extensive collection of sea war history. Allow a few hours as it there is a lot to see. A very well put together collection of artifacts.

At this small museum you get a very good impression of maritime warfare in the North Sea focusing on the "Battle of Jutland" (May/June 1916).

Amazing collection of items from the Battle of Jutland, a wonderful achievement to create the only museum that takes no signs and simply tells a story and remembers. We visited in November and we're very impressed by the way the museum has been created and...More

There's a ticket vending machine, which only accepts credit cards. The museum provides a lot of detailed information, but is a bit chaotic. Still definitely worth a visit. All information in German and English too.

The museum itself is interesting enough, though as a previous reviewer stated, it's a shame you can only pay by credit card to enter. We had Danish Kroner & would have preferred to pay with cash. The highlight (if I can be permitted to use...More

The sea war museum is one of the best of its kind, very good with information and very helpful if you have questions. The only bad thing is that you can only pay by credit card

Not worth a visit, unless you are really nerdy about wreckage from WW1. Badly designed exhibition, with no focus, absolutely no "red thread" through the exhibits. Its like they dont really care.

This museum is a labour of love curated and built by Danish diver and historian, Gert Norman Andersen. It was Andersen who discovered the wreck of U-20, the submarine that sunk the RMS Lusitania in May 1915. As owner of a large subsea contracting business,...More
