So many young lives lost in very extreme situations. Well worth a visit these guys do so well in recording history I for one was ignorant of the sacrifices made and am still wondering if it was worth the loss of life

Very interesting exhibits and an emotional visit

The war museum has a lot of traditional war museum exhibits, with models and displays showcasing battles and weapons.

What I found most interesting was the many stories told of the soldiers that participated. In particular the farewell letters from soldiers on a blimp that was slowly sinking into the sea was very powerful and moving.

Exceeds Expectations
Aug 2018 • Couples
Our family decided to visit Denmark, and to stop at Billund for a visit to Legoland. Googling what to do around, I learned about the Sea War Museum. I booked a guided tour and visited on the last sunday of August 2018 with my wife and baby son. Frankly my expectations were not very high, but the Museum was very good. The guide was
Christian, who made up for his imperfect English with enthusiasm and kindness. I learned a great deal about WW! at sea, and the various artifacts, including large renovated parts of U boats, are quite spectacular. When you can actually see a part of the U boat that sand the Lusitania you are literallu touching history. If there is a weak element to the Museum it is ironically the parts about the Battle of Jutland. The exhibits are not very clear about the battle's tactics, and the film is just weak. Yf they were to improve the film I think it would be a great exhibition for the battle as well. Anywa, highly recommanded.

A hidden gem
Jun 2017 • Friends
This excellent museum was founded and is run by an enthusiast, a diver who has salvaged many of the items on show. These include a huge and varied collection of artefacts and information boards about the First World War at sea, centred on The Battle of Jutland/Skaggeraksslacht. There are also highly detailed sonar scans of the wrecks.
The spaces are not clinically organised like many modern museums, this adds to the charm and interest of the museum.
Outside, there is a Jutland/Skaggerak memorial park - a striking group of sculptures honouring the thousands who died in the battle.
For anyone interested in the sea, and particularly navies, this is a real find and worth a diversion

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.

The story of a 1WW naval battle
Apr 2017 • Couples
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 is run. As others have said it will become a very popular place to go.

Worth a Visit

As others have stated you can only pay by credit card.
Good the info is available in English too, and we all found it interesting. Visited on a day when the weather was a bit hit and miss so we were glad of an indoor attraction.
