Did not know much about this battle and this exhibition tries to make sense of it by way of a timeline, slightly confusing, as was the battle. Some good exhibits.

I got an all inclusive year pass to the historical dock yard which I highly reconmend. The Jutland musem takes the visitor through the battle with video and artifacts and impressive models of several of the ships. Worth the time to see.

The battle of Jutland was an extremely confused affair, both sides had communication problems and at lot of second guessing was going on from both sides. The exhibition does a good job trying to make sense of it all.

Not a large number of artifacts but a great story and well put together. Take the time to listen and watch the videos to get a better understanding of the Battle of Jutland.

This was basically the battle that turned WW I around for the allies against Imperial Germany. It is depicted here in all of its horrific and gory details, as it cost many thousands of lives on both sides. Better tactics and leadership carried the day.

Tells the story well and does remind us of the loss of life that happened in this war. A lot of information to take in and we will probably return at a later date to pick up from where we left off. Certainly a lot...More

Worth a visit but did not keep me as long as the other attractions in the dockyard. I agree with another reviewer about it appearing a bit disjointed and I thought that was just me. It does bring home the appalling loss of life in...More
