  • Incredibly exciting to see the many model ships in the beautiful museum and of course a unique experience to walk around in and on the frigate Jylland. We met a round shows that radiated commitment and great knowledge of the frigate. Unfortunately we didn't have time to be with in the tour at. 11.

  • When you visit Ebeltoft, it is quite clear that you must not miss the frigate Jylland. The ship has a fantastic piece of Danish history. There is done a fantastic job to maintain the ship and we owe it to everyone who contributes here, a big thank you. Absolutely stunning!

  • Far exceeded my expectations. First is an exhibition of dozens of model ships made with incredible attention to detail and snippets of information about the history from sail to steam and their battles. Then you go outside to visit the actual ship. There are 4 decks to explore including the royal rooms at the top down to the depths including sleeping rooms, cannons, etc. Model people are set up in some areas including a medical room where a patient was having his leg amputated with realistic sound effects. You are free to explore on your own and it feels authentic rather than the artificial tourist exhibitions you sometimes encounter.
  • One of the best museums of its kind! The frigate has 4 visitable decks and each features scenes (complete with dolls, utensils and sounds) showcasing the life on the ship. The bottom part is still the original woodwork, and it is possible to walk under the ship!
  • Splendid site. Both for kids and adults with a sence for Danish history
  • Have to admit that the ship is incredibly well preserved for its age, as well as the wear and tear it faced during the Slesvig Wars. The museum does a good job and informing its visitors what it was like of her sailors during the 1800's, as well as what she faced during the Slevig War of 1864 against the combined fleet of Prussia and Austria. A marvel of Danish ingenuity and a perfect example of what was Denmark's small, but fierce navy.
  • An interesting museum ship, propelled by both sail and steam. Beautifully restored and well worth visiting
