This was one of our favorite stops in Esbjerg. Allow about 2 hours. One wing is devoted to the off shore oil and wind industries. Very educational displays of how this is done. A nice little aquarium. Try to be there during seal feeding time...More

Not too large aquarium with some interesting yet not astonishing sea life. Very nice playground for the kids. If you plan a visit to the area and relax at the beach it is worth dropping by. Driving specifically to the museum would not make sense.

A well laid out museum with interesting displays on fishing, general seafaring, offshore oil and wind-farms; especially the interactive offshore oil displays. Also enjoyed the "Fish Cakes" for lunch in the upstairs cafe.

This museum is just opposite the attraction Mennesket ved havet. In fact, from the restaurant of the museum, you can have a view of the four sculptures. This museum came as a surprise, as it is probably the most organised and complete maritime fisheries and...More
