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.

  • It is a museum was built on their way to Colombo and the 2013 using dock. Extensive use of glass, is a contemporary and modern buildings. Ocean transport maritime nation Denmark is exhibited. It is worth looking in appearance only because admission is higher on the brink.

  • 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!
  • Great historical museum next to the castle. Lot of replicas of ships and abundant information about their roles in trade and war.
  • Interesting architecture, good and complete information, big exhibition and a great (but super expensive!) store. Lacks a café or something similar.
  • Innovative and interesting. I am not a fan of the trend to "multimedia" and "mini"-information but this is one of the better efforts. Unfortunately nothing replaces the shipyard and its peak 20000 workers.
  • Exciting and informative visit. I was there when the Sex and the Sea exhibition was on, and that was a funny and interesting end to the tour.
