M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark, Helsingoer

4.3
The collections of M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark tell the story of Denmark as one of the world's leading shipping nations. Follow the sloping bridges down to the old dry dock between Kronborg Castle and The Culture Yard to enter the underground museum. The exhibitions feature a fleet of merchant ships and personal stories linked to the museum's collections from the past four centuries. Interactive installations and games provide opportunities for playing and learning together with others. Experience the role of the captain, or sit behind the desk of the shipping executive conducting world trade in today's marketplace. Many exhibits are expressed using a set design and a film projected directly onto the architecture of the building.

  • Exciting experience to see this museum, which is created in the former dry dock in Elsinore shipyard. Funny to think that it was here, Troels Rivendell was apprenticed and received his training as a ship's electrician. It is so nice made and a joy to walk around in. We sent our thoughts for Bjarke Engels, since we came, but because we could sense him in style. We did not know in advance, but was aware that BIC actually architects behind it. We get lost once again in the dust of Bjarke Engels. The Museum is an independent institution, recognized by the State and operated mainly sf funds from the Ministry of culture. The Queen is patron.

  • The maritime museum is definitely worth a visit. Located in the former dry dock. There are many detailed descriptions. Many of the descriptions are, however, with a valid small font and is sometimes in the half-dark. The Museum will be suitable for children, since it is my impression that many objects can also be affected. We noticed that there was a very interesting tour/adventure tour for kids. There was a nice shop with sale of maritime effects.

  • We really liked this museum. It’s in a cool building that is in a dry dock. Well worth a visit and included with the Copenhagen card. The exhibits were beautifully designed and all worked well. A nice shop too with lots of unusual Scandinavian gifts.
  • My Ticket from Kronborg castle got me a discount here so I decided to give it a look given my interest in maritime history, I learned some things that stirred strong emotions in me but I was pleased for the visit here and had a great time
  • Brilliant museum! The architecture alone makes this place worth while visiting. The exhibitions, permanent as well as special, are vividly designed, and make for a good overall experience. A definite must see in Elsinore!
  • Interesting and beautifully designed museum. A visit is highly recommended.
  • Interesting modern museum even if a little small. Suggest that you try out some of the interactive elements else the information around is a little boring
