  • The frigate Jylland is well worth a visit. We got a guided tour of Erik, who told live on fregattens raids and life, it was almost like being there. The tour was free (when the entrance was paid). Then educational and participative show about the old guns of the frigate, which was fired a shot of great admiration for all. The children were involved in the show and tried to be sailors, who should let a cannon. After the tour and the gun show was a children's tour, where there should be found six keys to open fregattens treasure chest, which was full of secrets. A great visit for children and their parents.

  • The ship visit is interesting, but as I read in other reviews, there are descriptions in English ... a ride and go.

  • 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
