  • I love boats. I love tall ships. My wife and family.... ehhh, maybe not so much. My opinion is that this is a great stop to visit whilst at the sea. If you are expecting a "magnificent show" or a lot ...  more »
  • The frigate Jylland is a super exciting and educative museum, as there can be read about the war of 1864 and the Danes ' battle against Prussia and Austria. Quickened when sitting/lying/standing non-living people around on the ship. We were there during the autumn holidays, which held Cannon shots with lots of exciting stories.

  • But it lacks a proper introduction to the historical. With today's technical possibilities, we could easily provide the visitor with an iPad and headphones with a guided tour accompanied by background-making reports. This could be done in several versions. We visited the frigate some years back, and there is not much has happened to develop experience. Our history solve the youth will be not communicated in any way. One could also on the home page give background fabric, so children could prepare for the p0å things they shouldn't see.

  • if you are into classic warship and maritime history this will be right in your alley. You get to visit all decks and inspect the ship from beneath. There is also a large museum with a basement especially made for the kids. Visit the workshops to see how they are restoring the ship.
  • Be there for the daily canon blasts - good show and the information given prior to this is good and entertaining. Treasure hunt for the kids is a good way to get around the entire area. The interactive setups doesn't work too well anymore though - kids liked them anyhow. One huge ship!
  • The ship is very well preserved and the exhibition gives a good impression of life on board. There are also activities for the kids integrated in the exhibition. Cannons are fired and sails are set.
  • Boring, and they talk in Danish for way to long. Could have been done different.
  • Quite expensive, interesting but not a lot of content. Mostly Danish descriptions, few translated to English or German
