The strength of this museum is to attract people, like me, that doesn't have any maritime culture thanks to an audacious and attractive architecture. The museum is dense and playful. One part of the exhibition was still under renovation, and it might be the "contemporary...More

Friends told us about this museum, which wasn't even on our radar... don't miss it! Easily combined with a visit to Kronborg (and tickets discounted when you show your Kronborg receipt). The displays are very interesting and the museum architecture is fascinating.
