Many visitors will remember Denmark and the welfare state and recognise the 1970s quarter with the commune and the nuclear family, the jazz bar and moped workshop, the TV shop, the minimarket and the Turkish migrants’ flat.

Admission is free for everyone under 18 years old.

Experience the sea.

Meet seals, fishes, birds and whale skeletons. Immerse yourself in the history of fishing, explore an authentic harbour environment from the past with ships and live crafts, and discover offshore up close in a new major exhibition.

Here, on the edge of the Wadden Sea, we open the door to the Wadden Sea National Park and the World Heritage Site giving you an opportunity to meet the animals and the people inhabiting the coast.
