A great place to learn about maritime. The architecture is stunning bright and spacious. Easily can spend 1 hour +

Interesting architecture and open layout inside. The exhibits are thematic rather than chronological and seem meant to evoke an idea rather than convey a lot of info. Worth it if you’re already in Elsinore or have the Copenhagen Card to get in free.

It’s very small and with no actual things of value to see. It’s mostly with replicas and drawing of how the old ships looked like. I entered for free and it’s was fine but I wouldn’t pay for it

Definitely worth a visit in Elsinore. Very close to Kronborg Castle is an experience that is completely different. Especially the architecture of the place is worth enjoying.

Very interesting Museum which you can visit on the way to the Kronberg Castle. Well worth the visit to expand your knowledge of Danish sailing history.

Maritime Museum of Denmark - built in the old dry dock in Elsinore - has a very interesting modern style exhibition and is also worth a visit just to enjoy the amazing architecture in itself!

We stopped in to check out the museum on our day trip to Kronberg Castle. It was well set out and the displays were very interesting. When we were there they were installing two new areas. I'm guessing they will be open by the end...More

Wow, a great spot with plenty for adults for at least several hours (and many great kid-level exhibits too). The architecture is stunning. The exhibits include the technical (eg, many examples of different types of nav-related equipment) and the social aspects of life at sea....More

Loved it here in Helsingor. Allow yourself a couple of hours going round reading all the artefacts and information about the history of maritime in Denmark. Wonderful architecture and lovely cafe for food and drinks. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit here.

Hi! The entrance bridge is under construction until July 14 but you can still get an architectural experience and enjoy the museum and the dock.

No, there are no Viking ships there. It's more of maritime trade museum.
